There are about 2,000 people on the housing waiting list, and in any year less than one in ten applicants is likely to be allocated a property.
Households will only be offered properties with the number of bedrooms to meet their needs, in line with housing benefit rules.
All our tenancies are initially offered on a one-year introductory basis. After this, we'll grant a flexible (five-year fixed term) tenancy on all properties with two bedrooms or more. Lifetime tenancies will only be offered for certain sheltered housing schemes and one-bedroomed homes.
We suggest you follow these links and look at our housing options pages so that you can make the best decision on how to meet your housing need:
