Who gets priority?

When you apply to us, we will assess your application using the information you have given us and place you into one of 5 Bands, depending on your housing need.  We will also tell you your effective date (the date you went into your band) and confirm the date we received your application (your registration date).  If you are in band 1+, 1 or 2, your effective date is the date you went into that band, if you are in Band 3 or 4, it wil be the date your appplication was registered.


The information below sets out the bands and examples of the type of people who would be placed into them.
