Attention all Applicants - Important Changes to the Housing Allocations Scheme
We have recently written to all applicants on our housing register to inform you that the Housing Allocations Scheme is changing and advising you of the action you need to take.
As you may be aware Newark and Sherwood District Council has made some amendments to the Housing Allocations Scheme. As a result we need to ensure that we hold up to date and accurate information for everyone who is currently on the housing register and there is some additional information that we now require.
If you have already completed the form we sent you, you do not need to do anything. However, if you have not completed it and if you want to remain on the housing register please complete the form we sent you and return this ASAP.
If you have not received your letter or form, or require a replacement form please contact our Customer Access Service on 0845 258 5550.
Important changes to the way you pay - from Monday 16 January
From Monday 16 January 2017, along with Newark and Sherwood District Council, we will no longer have a cashier service at our offices. If you currently pay your rent by cash, we will support you to find another way of paying.
The easiest and the safest way to pay your rent is by Direct Debit. You can choose the payment date to suit you and have the peace of mind of knowing that your rent is paid each month.
To set up a direct debit, just give us a ring on 0845 258 5550.
Staff will still be located at our offices to offer all the regular services as well as help with alternative payment methods.
If you have any questions or need any help or support, just call us on 0845 258 5550.
We are currently working on a new website. If you've suggestions on how we can improve things, we'd really like to hear from you.
