Choice Based Lettings in West London

The flagship West London project is the Locata choice based lettings scheme. The scheme was originally set up by 5 West London boroughs (Ealing, Brent, Hounslow, Hillingdon and Harrow) and 3 housing associations (Ealing Family Housing, PCHA and Paradigm).


The original development of the scheme was funded by a grant from the then ODPM, with match funding from the original member boroughs. The West London Locata scheme now includes most of the housing associations with property in West London. Member fees cover the cost of property adverts, maintenance of the IT system and processing of bids. Locata Housing Services (the company owned by the original 8 members) also provides administration and support.

In West London the Scheme is operated on a sub regional basis with boroughs and housing associations working closely together.

The West London Allocations and Lettings Group (WLALG)

The West London Allocations and Lettings Group consists of lettings officers from the 5 West London boroughs and partner housing associations who are members of the West London Locata Choice Based Lettings partnership, and deals with the operational issues arising from the joint system. The group meets approximately every 12 weeks.
