If you want to be considered for affordable housing (a council house), you need to join the housing waiting list.

To apply to join the list, update your existing application, and check your points and positions on the list, please visit HBC Homes Online.

Please note, although your position on the waiting list may vary slightly as applicants join and leave, substantial change is unlikely unless your application has been updated following changes in your circumstances. We will contact you as soon as you are shortlisted for a new home.
