Apply to join the housing register

We do not have any council-owned housing in this district but we do manage the housing register (waiting list) for a number of registered providers (housing associations). If you qualify for the housing register, we will nominate you to a registered provider, when they have a suitable property to let.

How do I apply?

  • You need to call us on 01327 322163 (Monday to Friday 9:00am to 5:15pm) to find out if you qualify to join the housing register. If we think you qualify, we will send you an application form.
  • Return your completed form to us with supporting documents, such as proof of identity, and we will assess your application.
  • We will write and inform you of our decision. If you are not happy with the decision, you have the right to request a review.

To qualify to join the housing register you need to have a local connection and a housing need.

  • You may have a local connection if you have lived in the area for 6 out of the last 12 months, or have previously lived here for 3 out of the last 5 years.
  • We generally consider that you have a housing need if you have been asked to leave your home or your current home is not safe or suitable for you.

For more information see our Housing Application Guide.
