Home Choice Begins in Torbay

Torbay is the latest part of Devon to join a county-wide register for housing.

Devon Home Choice means anyone outside the 'Bay can apply for a house here, but also means we can look for homes across the county too.

It will mean tens of thousands of people on one big list, but Rupert Warren who is co-ordinating the changeover says it is a positive thing for people, "they'll be able to see properties, not just in Torbay but also across Devon. So for example if someone was looking to move to take up work or support a relative in another part of Devon they would be able to do so."

There are three more areas of the county due to switch over by March 3rd.
