We currently have a high number of housing applications to be processed which is taking longer than our expected 10 day service standard.
If you have completed a housing register application and you have not received a reply from us yet, please do not complete another application.
We are working hard to process all applications as quickly as possible and apologise for this delay.
A letter or email will be sent to you as soon as the application is processed.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
In this section you will find information about renting from the Council, options for moving, privately renting, and other affordable housing options.
