6. Assessment of housing need

All applicants who are accepted onto the DHC Housing Register will have their application assessed  and  be  awarded  an  appropriate  band  based  on  an  assessment  of  their housing need in accordance with the allocations scheme.  The band categories are defined in the DHC scheme. See www.devonhomechoice.com for current policy.  This is to ensure that the Council meets its legal obligations as set out in the Housing Act (1996) amended by the Homelessness Act (2002).
