The Housing Register
Who can apply for housing?
Anyone aged 16 or over can apply for Council housing but you do have to be eligible for Council Housing to be accepted onto the Housing Register.
Certain classes of people from abroad cannot be considered for Council Housing. These are:-
- People who are subject to Immigration Control.
- People who have no recourse to public funds.
- People who are not habitually resident in the UK, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland.
We also have an Exclusions Policy. This means that if you or any member of your household has been guilty of serious anti-social behaviour, you may be excluded from the Council Housing Register.
