Allocation of Housing:
•Availability of housing is dependent on vacancies and movement within current housing stock.
•All applications are scored against an Applicant Ranking System and given a Priority Score and
then placed on two waiting lists:
Wait Turn waiting list:
Based on date of application.
Priority waiting list:
Based on priority score given to applicant.
•Allocations to properties are made alternately between the Wait Turn and Priority lists so the
process is fair to all applicants.
•Matching the family make up to the property type and capacity is also used in the allocation
•Applicants may refuse one offer of housing without affecting their position on the waiting list.
A refusal of a second offer means they are moved to the bottom of the waiting list.
