Ending of the sub-regional scheme
The council has worked jointly with the district councils of North East Derbyshire, Bolsover and Bassetlaw to provide a sub-regional housing scheme. This meant that applicants living in the four districts and boroughs could move more easily between the council areas.
Very few households have taken the opportunity to move between the areas and all four district councils have agreed to end the scheme.
People who need to move to Chesterfield can still apply for accommodation and will be assessed in line with policy.
