Local lettings policy

The Leeds City Council Lettings Policy allows Belle Isle Tenant Management Organisation to have some local arrangements for deciding who can apply for homes. 

Local Lettings Policies can be considered where it will help to support a particular local community. Local Lettings Policies have to be approved by Leeds City Council and we have to show evidence for why we think a particular policy will be useful. This may include customer research i.e. consultation with residents who already live in the area, local Ward Members and customers on the Leeds Homes Register.

Where a local lettings policy operates, we can give preference for offers of homes to a particular customer group. 

The most common type of policy is age related, for example, preference will be given to customers aged over 40. 

The Council reviews all Local Lettings Policies once per year.
