Dorset Home Choice gives you more choice about where you want to live.
Welcome to Dorset Home Choice. North Dorset District Council, Purbeck District Council, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council in partnership with Bournemouth & Poole Borough Councils have developed a Dorset Wide Home Choice CBL scheme.
Important changes for applicants applying to the Borough of Poole, North Dorset District Council, Purbeck District Council, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council.
These local authorities are changing their allocation policy from December 2014 and all applicants on the housing registers of these authorities will be asked to re-register in late September 2014.
Details of Allocation Policy Changes
If you currently live in a home provided by a social landlord and are looking for a new home then mutual exchange using Exchange Locata might be for you.
New applicants can register with the scheme, by completing one common application form. Once registered applicants will be able to bid for properties, across all areas within the partnership where they are eligible.
Applicants will need to choose one authority as their managing local authority (if they wish to apply to more than one of the partners, this is usually the authority they either live in or wish to live in.
If this is your first visit to this website and you are not already on the Dorset Home Choice housing register you will need to register before you can bid for properties.
You may also want to look at the Scheme Guide to familiarise yourself with the bidding process. You may also wish to review the Dorset Home Choice Allocations Policy or the Bournemouth Borough Council Allocations Policy.
If you are an existing social housing tenant we have provided further information on fixed term tenancies and affordable rents.
You should be able to find all the information you need on this website, but if you have any questions about Home Choice please contact your relevant local authority.
