Welcome to On The Move, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council's Choice Based Lettings scheme for allocating council and partner housing association properties for rent in the Borough.
On The Move allows you to bid for properties that you would like to live in, by advertising available social housing in the borough.
You may only bid for a property if your application has been accepted onto our Homeseekers' Register.
We are currently updating our Housing Application process and are aiming to roll out our new system on 1st August 2014. Whilst this is being done, we are unable to process any new applications from now until the new system goes “LIVE”.
If you still have a housing need after this date, you can log on to the new system which will require you to complete a further assessment and an application form. If you are homeless or are due to become homeless between today and the 1st August 2014, please contact the Housing Options Team on 01702 215002 Option 2 for further advice and/or assistance.
