A review has been launched looking at how Aberdeenshire Council housing is allocated.
The local authority has 13,000 properties for rent and plans for nearly 2,000 more within the next five years.
More than £150million is to be spent on affordable housing by 2024.
Now the council is assessing if the way housing staff decide who lives where is “fit for purpose”.
Council tenants and those on the waiting lists in Aberdeenshire are being asked for their views on the system.
A spokesman said: “The council currently has around 13,000 properties for rent and plans to invest more than £150million in affordable housing over the next five years as part of the strategic housing investment plan.
“This could result in more than 2,350 additional homes being built across the area, with close to 2,000 of those proposed for social rent.
“To ensure the way homes are allocated is fit for purpose, the housing service is keen to hear from existing tenants as well as those on the waiting list or considering making an application.”
