I’ve seen site of the nominations policy for the affordable housing in Wesham and it’s as I said during the elections to the people I spoke to about this subject. In the first instance Fylde Borough Council will nominate 100% of the tenants. The criteria will be based on being local, ie Kirkham and Wesham people. Following that it will be people from the wider Fylde. After that it’s anyone else.
However, the anyone else will have a long wait as the housing list has several thousand people on it, more of them local than houses available.
There is still some fine tuning of the policy and I am arranging and chairing a meeting with the housing officers and others to discuss this further. But the influx of Liverpool and Manchester people that was rumoured to be coming in, is not true.
If you need any further information on this, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
