Join the housing register

Who can apply to be on the housing register?

You can apply for council housing through us. You'll usually have to join a waiting list and you're not guaranteed to get a property.

You can apply to join the housing register if you:

  • have a right to live in the UK
  • are aged 16 years or over
  • have a housing need listed in our allocations policy
  • live or have family/employment connections in the borough  (subject to verification)

We will send you a letter or an email if you have been accepted on the housing register.

This will tell you:

  • the band you have been placed within
  • the date your application has been registered from
  • the size of property you are eligible for

Please read the Allocation Scheme (PDF) [697KB] before you submit your request.
