As of 1 August 2020, the COVID-19 local lettings plan, which has been in place since June will be revoked and all available properties will now be let through the Gateway choice based lettings system
You will still not be able to move across local authority boundaries until further notice, unless you have a specific connection to more than one local authority. This is to ensure that each local authority is able to meet its own housing need within its own area and we will let you know when cross-boundary moves are permitted again.
If you are invited to view a property and have any of the symptoms of COVID-19 please do not agree to view any properties but instead inform the relevant housing provider that you have these symptoms and that you are self-isolating. Some providers may send you videos/photos of the properties instead of inviting you to view a property in person.
