Chesterfield Borough Council's Choice Based Lettings Scheme
'On the move' is the name of the scheme which Chesterfield Borough Council uses to allocate its properties to applicants on the waiting list. All properties are advertised in the new Housing Solutions Centre, the Staveley Office and the on the move website .
The Housing Solutions Centre is situated at 73 Low Pavement in the town centre, close to the pavements shopping centre. In the centre you can:
register on the waiting list
receive housing advice ranging from shared ownership and private rented property to council accommodation as far away as Nottingham
bid on empty properties
get advice on services provided by the Home Improvement Agency, such as the Handy Person Scheme or energy efficiency
terminate your existing council tenancy
register for a mutual exchange
and much more…
You can bid on the properties advertised from Thursday (00:01am) to Tuesday (11:59pm) and the applicant at the top of the waiting list will be contacted soon after. You will not be able to bid on any properties on Wednesday. The new advertising cycle will then commence on the following Thursday.
