touches to how the new properties will be allocated to local residents.
The new houses will be advertised through the housing option system, and to
ensure the properties are offered to locals with a Gamesley connection, you
will need to be able to satisfy one of the following local criteria before
you can bid :
* Must be resident in Gamesley for a minimum of 1 year or have previously
lived there for 5 of the last 10 years.
* Must be employed (at least 20 hours per week) within Gamesley for the last
* Have an essential need to give/receive support from family (parents,
grandparents, brothers and sisters) who have been resident in Gamesley for 5
out of the last 10 years.
The exact 'bidding' dates etc are not yet known, but I would welcome any
comments on the 'local criteria' in the meantime.
