Housing Services are responding to the continuing challenges of delivering services under the restrictions of COVID-19. This has caused us operational difficulties which will result in some temporary measures being put in place surrounding the advertising of properties on Homespot. From 14 April 2021 we will be changing Homespot from a weekly cycle to a fortnightly one, we expect this to be in place for approximately 4 months.

We are sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience this change may cause.

How to apply

To apply for a council house, you will need to fill out an application form:

After we have assessed your application, we will send you a letter to tell you:

  • what priority you have been awarded (Band 1, 2, 3 or 4) and
  • what applicant group you are in (Home Seeker, Home Mover or Home Starter)

We advertise our available homes to let and update them every Wednesday. You decide which you wish to bid on.

You can usually only bid for properties advertised for your applicant group. For example, Home Seekers can only apply for properties advertised for Home Seekers. The same applies to Home Movers and Home Starters.

Some properties will be advertised for "All Groups", and all applicants can bid for these.

Properties that have been adapted for specific needs will be advertised as "Adapted" properties. Applicants with a medical recommendation and have an "F" on their Band of priority ie Band 1F or Band 3F can bid for these properties.

Details of how to apply and further information can be found in our frequently asked questions page.
