More funding for housing choice

Tenants will be able to have a greater say over their housing options and where they wish to live following a £1 million allocation announced by the homelessness minister Iain Wright. More than 30 councils and partner housing associations will be able to offer greater choice to new and existing tenants after bidding to develop their lettings schemes, bringing coverage to more than 80 per cent of local authorities. The scheme offer tenants greater mobility, choice and flexibility to move across different local authority areas.
