The Housing Act 1996 requires us to keep a housing allocation scheme, which explains how social housing in this area is allocated.
To be eligible to join the Housing Waiting List, people must have a housing need. Examples of a housing need are
- a medical problem which is directly affected by your current accommodation
People from abroad who are not able to access public funds will not be eligible to join the waiting list, but will receive advice on housing problems.
When allocating housing, consideration will be given to the people with the highest priority and in strict date order.
