Welcome to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Choice-Based Lettings Scheme.
Allocation of Properties
In line with the Allocations Scheme, the Council will be making direct offers of social housing to two groups of applicants who have a high priority for re-housing. These are statutory homeless families placed in temporary accommodation, and families with a very high priority for re-housing on health grounds who require accessible accommodation. This is to ensure the Council makes the best use of the limited availability of housing. A large percentage of two bedroom properties will be used for direct offers. The majority of all other bedsizes will still be advertised on the Council’s Choice-based Lettings scheme, Home Connections. All applicants to the Housing Register who have a high priority for re-housing are encouraged to continue to bid for advertised properties and to be as flexible as possible when doing so to increase their chances of being re-housed
