For some of our Retirement Housing estates we have agreements with the local authority to let a percentage of our vacant properties to people nominated by them. Hanover’s agreement for this estate is that all of the allocations are managed by the local authority, Test Valley Borough Council, who can be contacted on 01264 368000.
