Here is the latest news on available affordable housing for people living in Blakeney or the surrounding area and with strong ties to the village.

Latest Property list 

Your Choice Your Home is the Choice Based Lettings scheme for North Norfolk. 

Under the scheme properties in North Norfolk are advertised as they become available; most properties will be for rent from a housing association but others will be for rent from a private landlord or being sold on a shared ownership basis.

To be considered for a property you need to ‘bid’ (express an interest) for the property.
Although the word ‘bid’ is used this does not involve any payment.
Only applicants registered on the North Norfolk Housing Register can bid for properties.

ARE YOU IN NEED OF A HOME HERE IN BLAKENEY?

DO YOU MATCH ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA?

The Trustees of the ‘Memorial Cottages’ are in a position to offer one of the recently refurbished properties on New Road.  It has two bedrooms, a garden and parking.

In order to be able to apply you must:- 

1)    Have been born in Blakeney or have lived in Blakeney for not less than 5 years and:-

a)    Have been partially or totally disabled whilst serving for this country in the Armed Forces

OR 

b)    Be a dependant of someone who is disabled or was killed whilst serving for this country in the Armed Forces 

OR

c)    Due to age or infirmity are unable to maintain themselves

OR

d)    Be in need of housing

 

The wording that we have had to use, complies with the legal terms used for the charity, however, if you meet point no. 1 and any of the other four points, or if you are unsure, (even if you have spoken to me before) but think you may like to apply, then please do get in touch with me (Tracey Bayfield) in the Parish Office, all details shown above.

Even if you applied before, you are very welcome to apply again, as we had so many applications but only the one cottage to let, hence there were a number of disappointed local people, but who knows, second time lucky maybe?

I will be more than happy to talk with you confidentially about your individual scenario, to ascertain whether you qualify to apply.

THE CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS IS THURSDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER 2015
