Welcome to Bucks Home Choice

Bucks Home Choice is the scheme by which social housing is allocated in Buckinghamshire. It is operated by a partnership of Aylesbury Vale, Chiltern, South Bucks and Wycombe District Councils, together with the Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust.

The scheme advertises social rented properties and aims to give more choice about where you live and when you move. There is a severe shortage of housing in the area and therefore you will need to consider all other housing options available to you.

All applicants are assessed according to their housing need, given a priority band and advised what size property they are eligible for.

Once you have received your assessment you can see which properties you are eligible to bid for. This can be done by logging in with your Bucks Home Choice number and date of birth. You decide which properties you would like to be considered for and place a bid on up to 3 properties in each advertising cycle. The properties are usually let to the person in the highest priority band.

Draft Bucks Home Choice Policy Consultation

We are currently reviewing our Housing Allocations Policy, and want to make changes so that the policy:

• reflects changes in the law relating to our statutory duties
• prevents homelessness
• makes the best use of the limited housing stock available
• prioritises housing for those in the greatest housing need

We are now holding a consultation to gather your feedback on the changes, if you wish to make comments please fill in the online survey. You have until 5.15 on Monday 7th January 2019 to submit your comments.

For more on the changes, please read the following documents: Housing allocations policy background, Bucks Home Choice draft policy and Summary of Changes.
