Apply for housing

Please contact us if you are looking for advice about your housing options. Call 01442 228000 and ask for 'Housing Needs'.

If you think you may be eligible for a council home, please read our  Housing Allocations Policy (PDF 1MB) before you apply to make sure that you have the best chance of being housed. The policy helps us make sure that council homes go to people in greatest housing need. We do not discriminate and we make the best use of our resources.

We reviewed the Housing Allocations Policy in 2022 and made some changes to the way we allocate council housing. We carried out extensive consultations with tenants, residents, staff and councillors to make sure that we continue to make best use of our housing stock. The new policy was adopted on Monday 4 July 2022.
