Choice Based Letting has been in operation in Cork County Council since 30th November, 2016.
The new system incorporates the on-line advertisement of vacant units by Cork County Council, allowing qualified social housing support applicants to express an interest in those vacant units. It is the main allocation process that not only affords more choice to applicants for Social Housing support but has also resulted in the refusal rate of offered properties reducing to 6%. The refusal rate was 43% in North Cork in Nov 2016!!
As and from today, Cork County Council has commenced the roll-out of the advertisement of vacant Approved Housing Body dwellings on the Choice Based Letting system.
