Local Lettings Policy

Unity is an organisation committed to building strong sustainable neighbourhoods. ‘Local Lettings Policies’ help us to achieve this. ‘Local Lettings Policies’ are used to promote and maintain a balanced and sustainable community by tackling problems such as high levels of anti-social behaviour.

Local Lettings Policies may be used to achieve a wide variety of housing management and other housing policy objectives. So for example, local lettings policies may be used to lower the proportion of older children/young adults on an estate to reduce the incidences of anti-social behaviour; or to deal with concentrations of deprivation by setting aside a proportion of vacancies for applicants who are in employment.
