The system councils use to assess applications for housing is often referred to as the 'allocations scheme' or 'housing register'. Procedures vary from one area to another, but all councils have to follow certain rules. They must consider every application individually, as long as you have followed the application procedure correctly and applicants do not have to live in the Borough.
Anyone can apply for social rented housing:
Housing association tenants
People on the council transfer list
People who are homeless
Living in private rented accommodation
We are currently accepting direct applications for housing but we may occasionally close our waiting lists in order to keep waiting times manageable.
