Homechoice is changing

What is changing?

  • The Homechoice register and housing allocation rules
  • A new website for Homechoice

Planned changes to Homechoice will happen during Summer 2017.

Homechoice is changing because demand for social housing in Cornwall is very high.

There are currently 18,500 households registered with Homechoice and on average only 2,300 social housing properties become available each year.

The update to Homechoice will mean more of the homes that become available go to families and individuals with the greatest need. It will also see local connections strengthened.

Homechoice, Cornwall’s system for allocating social housing, is getting a new and improved website. The new website will make it easier for applicants to apply for homes that become available through Homechoice and to manage their accounts online.
