Local connection and time on the waiting list

Date of Registration Quota System (DORQ) means that 25% of all council homes will be let to the person who has been waiting the longest (the earliest registration date) with a local connection to the Middleton Park Ward area.

Local Connection is defined in terms of residence, employment and/or close family association.

The quota will apply across all areas and property types, with the exception of adapted homes and sheltered accommodation.  This exception is to ensure disabled people in housing need are prioritised for offers of adapted properties ahead of other customers.

Every fourth property available by type and area will be included in the 25% quota.
