Summary

The First Secretary of State is issuing this Code of Guidance to local housing authorities (referred to in this Code of Guidance as housing authorities) in England under s169 of the Housing Act 1996 (the 1996 Act). Housing authorities are required to have regard to this guidance in exercising their functions under Part 6 of the 1996 Act.

The Code of Guidance (the Code) provides information about the allocation of social housing under Part 6 of the 1996 Act. It gives guidance on how housing authorities should discharge their functions and apply the various statutory criteria in practice. It is not a substitute for legislation and in so far as it comments on the law can only reflect the Department's understanding at the time of issue. Housing authorities will still need to keep up to date on any developments in the law in these areas.

The Code has been published following the introduction of the Homelessness Act 2002 (the 2002 Act), which amends Part 6 of the 1996 Act. Annex 2 provides a list of amending and secondary legislation which currently apply.
