The Housing Allocations Policy (PDF 1MB) sets out how we prioritise applications for council and housing association homes based on your circumstances and level of housing need.
We have reviewed the Housing Allocations Policy in 2022 and will be making some changes to the way we allocate council housing. The new policy will be adopted and implemented from Monday 4 July 2022.
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 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.
