View your housing waiting list position online

If you have applied for social housing in the district you can view your details online. You will be able to view:

  • your total housing needs points
  • your highest and lowest positions on our waiting list

To access this you will need to register or sign in to your My Harrogate account. You will need your application reference number which you will find on your confirmation letter. You will receive this letter once your application has been processed which can take up to eight weeks.

Please note that due to the high number of applicants on our waiting list we would encourage you to enquire about your position online. If you are unable to do this and would prefer to enquire by telephone it is not necessary to make regular enquiries. This is because although your position on the waiting list will vary on a day to day basis as applicants join and leave the waiting list, there is generally very limited movement in your position unless you have had a change in circumstances. We will contact you as soon as you are shortlisted for a property.

Keeping our communities safe: have you got what it takes?

North Yorkshire and City of York multi-agency MAPPA Strategic Management Board is looking to recruit a new lay adviser to sit on its management board.

MAPPA is the means by which local agencies work together to best protect York and North Yorkshire from the serious harm that some offenders may still present after being convicted for offences of a sexual or violent nature, and prevent further harm to victims. MAPPA is overseen by a board, which includes two voluntary lay advisers who play a critical role in reviewing and monitoring all areas of MAPPA and importantly, provide an independent view point.

The post is a voluntary part-time post and the post holder will be expected to attend up to four meetings of SMB per year with a requirement to attend regional meetings, contribute to local sub groups and undertake familiarisation, training and reading to enable them to understand and contribute to the meetings. The post holder will not have contact with offenders.

The post does carry an entitlement to legitimate expenses such as travel and refreshments. Compensation for loss of earnings/childcare expenses may be provided.

The post is subject to clearance through the Disclosure and Barring Service and is regulated by the Commissioner for Public Appointments.

Interested? Think you have what it takes?

For an informal discussion or to request an application form please contact the MAPPA Manager on 01904 526000 or email

Closing date is Monday 30 July 2018.
