Removal of lodging points
Points were awarded to applicants lodging with family or friends. The majority of applicants awarded lodging points were single, young people who had no housing need to move.
If an applicant does not have a housing need, he or she should not receive preference over other applicants to move.
We have now removed lodging points. All applicants will be able to have their applications reassessed and if they have any other housing need, points will be awarded to reflect this.
