Register for housing: frequently asked questions
How is my application assessed?
Your application will be assessed according to the Housing Allocations Scheme and you will be placed into one of five bands (Priority Band to Band D), depending on your level of housing need. We may ask you for some further information in order to verify your housing circumstances and to award the correct level of priority.
We will then write to you and tell you:
- your housing application number
- the band your application has been placed in
- the Relevant Date of your application
- the number of bedrooms you are entitled to
You can find full information on who is eligible to join the Housing Register, who will qualify and how priority is awarded in the Housing allocations scheme 2021 policy document.
