Epping Forest District Council introduced a new Housing Allocations Scheme on 26 September 2022, a copy of which can be found in the Help section of this website. Please check this for more information on how the new Scheme might affect you.  We have already contacted all those homeseekers who have been placed in a different Band under the new Scheme either by e-mail or post, if we do not hold an e-mail address for you.

We have also been in touch with everyone who was assessed as  Band A (urgent medical) and Band C (moderate medical) under the old Scheme to advise them of the changes  to medical priorities.  If your application was previously in either of these Bands and you have not yet returned your Medical Need to Move form, (sent earlier this month by e-mail or post if we did not have an e-mail address for you), please do so as soon as possible, otherwise your application cannot be re-assessed.  In the meantime, applications where the medical information has not yet been received or is awaiting re-assessment, have been placed in pending and you will not be able to bid.  This is because the applications cannot be correctly assessed under the new Scheme until we have the up to date information.
