Good luck in getting a place thru the scheme. By the time you get offered a place it may be better to buy a cut price apartment from a private developer if market has crashed by then(which i think it will have).
I also put my name on the SDCC list way back in early 2000. I was told that there was virtually no chance of me getting a place, as they put ‘single’ mothers, nackers, refugees, (i.e. basically anyone who thinks the country owes them something for nothing), at the top of the affordable housing lists. So much for going to college and paying taxes…
The problem stems back to the 1960’s where, after 800 years of British rule, the government enacted legislation which handed the country lock, stock, and barrel to unelected and unaccountable beurcreats, that operate with complete impunity.
Regarding your particular problem, it’s just a case of the Excuses Department of the SDCC coming out with something to fob you off. Real reasons are discussed in meetings which are not open to public scrutiny (see last paragraph). After all, it doesn’t make a blind bit of difference in reality whether you gave in your 2005 or 2006 P60, unless your earnings suddenly rocketed over the course of a year…!
Well, I say f**k em. My COMPLETED application form is going in the post tomorrow, and if they say anything else to try and fob me off, I’ll do me nut!! They shouldn’t ask me for any more paperwork, cos I’ve put everything in that they’ve asked of me…?
If I get any more smart arses(in the Councils)giving me “excuses”, I’ll go to my TD!!!
