How Dorset Home Choice Works
Dorset Home Choice aims to give you more choice about where you want to live. The information on these pages will provide you with a summary of how the scheme works, how you can access information about properties and how you can express an interest in a property (which we call bidding.
The specific allocation policy that applies to your housing register assessment will depend on the local authorities you have applied to within the partnership.
The Borough of Poole, North Dorset District Council, Purbeck District Council, West Dorset District Council and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council all use the Dorset Home Choice Common Allocations Policy. Bournemouth Borough Council use their own allocations policy.
