The local authority has an Allocations Policy to help households who are in the greatest housing need. If you are eligible you will be placed in one of the four priority bands. This applies to existing Council tenants requesting a transfer, and other households wanting Council accommodation. When your application has been processed, you will be entered on to the "Housing Register"
When a property becomes available, it will be advertised and applications invited to express interest in the vacancy. The application in the highest band who has been in that band the longest will be offered the opportunity to take up the tenancy.
