ALLOCATIONS POLICY UPDATE
Lister has reviewed its allocation policy to incorporate two main sources of change, as follows:
(a) We joined the EdIndex Key-to-Choice choice-based bidding system on EdIndex in 2018; and
(b) The various changes arising from the implementation in stages by the Scottish Government of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2014.
The Lister Management Committee approved the revised allocations policy on 29 Jan 2019 for consultation. The policy was confirmed in February 2019 following consultation.
Here is a copy of the draft revised Allocations policy.
TRANSFER POLICY UPDATE
The Lister Transfer policy has been updated to include a comment that Lister now uses the choice-based bidding system for all allocations except those involving a transfer, which we will continue to administer from the Lister office using Lister Transfer forms submitted by our tenants.
TRANSFER POINTS AND GUIDANCE REVIEW
The Management Committee is reviewing the transfer points system and associated guidance. The existing system is shown here. There is only one proposed change, which is outlined on the attached report on a proposed change to the Transfer points system.
If a Lister tenant has any comments on the transfer points system and/or the proposed change, please submit any comments in writing to Lister by email or letter by Monday 22 April. Any comments will then be considered by the April MC meeting.
Lister staff can also give general advice and assistance to Lister tenants about the system and this review – please just ask.
