Temporary Accommodation Placement Policy

Watford Borough Council is looking at how best to decide where to place individuals and families in need of temporary accommodation.

There is a very limited amount of temporary accommodation in Watford - there is not enough to meet current needs. This means that we cannot always find people somewhere suitable in Watford and so we have to look outside the borough for accommodation.

But we understand that there can be reasons why people and their families need to stay in the town. Where this is the case, we prioritise local accommodation for them. This is set out in the Temporary Accommodation Placement Policy (PDF 120kB).
