Lewes District Council, Eastbourne Borough Council and Eastbourne Homes have come together to provide an enhanced single housing service for both areas under the banner of Homes First.
As part of this initiative are looking at our policies to bring them up-to-date and make them more consistent. This will enable our staff to work more effectively and provide a better service across both areas.
Between 7 July and Monday 14 August we invited comments on our updated Housing Allocations Policy. This policy explains who is eligible to join our Housing Register and how we prioritise applications. The policy aims to benefit those with the most urgent housing needs.
