Register for housing

Our housing register

Social housing in Great Yarmouth is in high demand and is allocated to those in the highest need. As there is more demand for social housing than homes available each year, not all applicants will be housed through the Housing Allocations Scheme.

As part of your application, you may be contacted by a member of the Housing Options Service, who will talk through all the available housing options with you.

Not everyone is able to join the Housing Register. Qualification will depend on:

  • your housing need
  • your local connections to the borough of Great Yarmouth
  • how you have conducted previous accommodation that you have held

Our Housing allocations scheme 2021 document explains:

  • who is eligible and qualifies to join the Housing Register (called the Allocation Pool)
  • the different levels of priority available
  • how homes are matched

Please note that from 12 December 2022, all current housing applicants are being asked to complete a new online Housing Register application form (opens new window) as the Council is introducing a new Housing Allocations Scheme.

From 12 December 2022, the Council will no longer accept paper application forms and new applications must be made using the new form above.

For further information about these changes, please see the Register for housing: frequently asked questions section.
