Horizon does not hold its own waiting list and has not done so since 2013.  All data relating to prior waiting lists has been deleted in line with our document retention policy. 

 

Horizon uses a choice-based lettings system, Homehunt, run by Link to let its properties.  Homehunt enables anyone registered for housing with Link (or any of the other partners of Homehunt) to bid for properties that are advertised weekly.  This means that there is no housing (waiting) list.  Individuals registering for housing through our choice-based lettings system do not need to specify geographical areas of preference as the system operates across each local authority area in which we have properties.  We have therefore, applied a section 17 (information not held) exemption to the requests above.
