WILTSHIRE'S ALLOCATION POLICY REVIEW

Wiltshire’s allocation policy is currently being reviewed as a response to changes in legislation in the Localism Act 2011 and the changes to Housing Benefit entitlement contained within the Welfare Reform Act 2012.  As part of the review process we are consulting on the drafting of this policy.  To help you comment on the proposals we have put together a feedback questionnaire for you to complete and return either online or by post.

The consultation documents are available on the council’s public website:

WELFARE REFORM ACT 2012
 
This government change to welfare is designed to simplify the benefit system and encourage people to work.

It will affect many people across the country and if you are in receipt of benefit, or an employer, then it will affect you too.
