Keyways Housing Allocation Scheme

Type of service:
c/o Kettering Borough Council, Municipal Offices, Bowling Green Road, Kettering, Northamptonshire NN15 7QX
Service description:

Keyways is a choice-based lettings (CBL) system for allocating social housing. It is a collaboration between Corby Borough Council, Kettering Borough Council, and the Borough Council of Wellingborough.

Rather than a borough council deciding which housing to offer you, the Keyways website allows you to browse online adverts, choose a property yourself, and apply for it directly, from all three borough council areas.

Available properties in Corby, Kettering, and Wellingborough are advertised each week on the Keyways website and in the main council offices. A printed newsletter is available if you cannot access Keyways by other means.

Property adverts on the Keyways website state whether priority will be given to applicants that have a specific mobility or disability need. You must state any requirements on your application.

Types of property available:

Supported Housing
There are specialist supported housing schemes in the area. Speak to the local Housing Options Team for further information.

Social Rented Properties and Affordable Rented Properties
Properties provided by a borough council or a housing association.

Low-Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) Properties
Also known as ‘shared ownership’ or ‘shared equity’ properties, LCHOs help first time buyers, key workers, and social tenants purchase part of their home and start building their own equity.

Private Sector Properties
Approved properties from private landlords.
