The Housing Allocations Policy

The Housing Allocations Policy sets out how we prioritise applications for council and housing association homes based on your circumstances and level of housing need.

We reviewed the Housing Allocations Policy in 2017 and made some changes to the way we allocate council housing. This 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.

For more information, please read the  Housing Allocations Policy 2017 (PDF 1MB).
