Current policy

Our current Housing Allocations Policy provides a framework on how we allocate our housing stock.

The policy applies to both new applicants and existing council/social housing tenants who wish to transfer to another property and covers key areas such as:

  • Who is eligible to apply for housing.
  • Circumstances when people will not be considered for rehousing.
  • The process of applying for housing, including ‘bidding’.
  • How priority needs are assessed.
  • How properties are allocated to different household sizes and circumstances.
  • Household sizes.
  • How to deal with cases that fall outside general guidance.
  • The circumstances when different tenancies are used.
  • How offers of accommodation are made.
