Allocations policy

The policy for the allocation of council housing

The pdf icon Allocation Policy [2Mb] sets out how we match the people who apply for our homes with homes that become available.

To do this, we follow a number of guidelines. In this policy, we refer to a person or people in a house as a 'household'. This is because the people living together or who want to live together may not always be related and this means we cannot always refer to them as a family.

Please use the 'contact us' box if you have any questions. For more information, see 'related pages'.
