Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes, which together form believe housing, are asking around 18,500 tenants and housing applicants for their views on the Durham Key Options lettings scheme no later than Friday, 15 July.

The scheme, which was introduced in 2009 to offer people looking for a new home a range of housing solutions, is proposing a number of amendments in light of changes within government legislation and people’s differing housing needs.

Kath Wright from Dale & Valley Homes is encouraging people to take part. She said: “If you are currently looking for a home with one of the group’s landlords, this is a fantastic opportunity to tell us how applications should be dealt with and prioritised.”

Joanne Rouse from Durham City Homes agrees: “Kath’s right; and with questions on waiting times, transferring to a new home, and housing priority this is a great way to tell us what you think.”

Stephen Lindsey from East Durham Homes concluded: “You have the rest of this week to take part so don’t miss out.”
