There is an article about it here in the Times series; the consultation can be accessed here.
The council's plans, according to its website, are:
To replace the existing points system with a banding system that prioritises people in high need but also recognises the valuable contribution that people who are working or volunteering make to their local communityThe comments I would offer are: it sounds like they only want "good citizens" in future - just what sort of things do people have to offer to get on the list? And saying that someone has "little or no chance of being rehoused by the council" is not the same as saying that they do not need council accommodation!
To replace bidding with a system called assisted choice where staff help those in housing need choose a property that meets their needs from those that are available
To close our open housing waiting list so that we no longer accept applications from people who are not in high housing need who would have little or no chance of being rehoused by the council.
Barnet should set out to make more accommodation available, rather than shifting the goalposts.
The consultation ends on 15 October.
