Homes will be allocated through a formal process during the development phase of each project. Our members are currently working together to create a fair and easy-to-understand structure for this, called our Allocations Policy, which will be online here in full soon.
At the moment to be eligible for a Forest CLT home you need to:
If there are more applicants than homes available of any tenure or type, we are planning that homes will be allocated according to the contribution made towards the Forest CLT project. We encourage every Forest CLT member to get involved in the planning and development of our projects, but this is especially important if you intend to apply for a home with us.
For social rented homes, we expect to reach an agreement with Waltham Forest Council for allocating a proportion of our homes through the council’s nominations policy. We anticipate that priority will be given to those in the greatest need, or to families in existing social housing who can free up their current dwelling by moving to a new Forest CLT home.
