Local Housing and Devon Home Choice

Local Housing Issues - Study and Devon Home Choice

Housing Study 2017

As a result of there being no progress with the two allocated sites in the Dartmoor National Park Authority's current Local Plan the Parish Council embarked on its own Housing Study.  The focus of the study was to establish the views of Moretonhampstead residents in relation to the development of new housing; to examine housing need in Moretonhampstead in terms of quantity, size, type and tenure; and to evaluate how and where identified need could be met.

Devon Home Choice - new local connection criteria for "old stock"

The Parish Council has successfully negotiated with Devon Home Choice for the allocation criteria for Moretonhampstead to be changed in favour of local connection and/or employment.  This means local people will be placed higher on the priority list than before which is great news for everyone.  You MUST be on the Devon Home Choice to qualify so if you are in housing need (you do not need to be homeless to be in need) REGISTER ASAP.  The new criteria has been agreed for 1 year so don't delay!  If you need any help contact Julie Lammin 01647 440041.
