Temporary Homefinder Changes
Given the current situation regarding the coronavirus and its effect on services we are having to make difficult and unprecedented decisions on how we can continue to deliver essential services to our most vulnerable customers and the residents of Derby.

As a result, we have suspended the allocation of all general needs housing for Derby City Council and Derby Homes properties on Derby Homefinder for a period of at least six months.This does not include the allocation of other Homefinder landlord properties, which currently remain uninterrupted.

We are planning for these arrangements to be in place for up to 6 months, but the situation will be under constant review. Property adverts will continue for our over 60’s stock as usual and for all Homefinder Partner properties.

You do not need to take any further action and you will be able to access your online application as normal.

Allocations Policy Consultation

Derby City Council's Housing Allocations Policy outlines how available social housing is allocated to residents on the housing register in Derby. This policy was last reviewed in 2013 with minor amendments made in 2014 and then again in 2018 to reflect updated legislation.

We are asking for people’s views and opinions on the changes to the policy as part of a statutory consultation.
