Single Housing Registers in Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Anglesey and Powys
The way that you apply for social housing and how homes are allocated in Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Anglesey and Powys has changed. The councils in these counties together with all of the housing associations, working in these counties, have been working in partnership to make it easier for people to apply for social housing.
There’s now just one housing register in each county and all properties are allocated from that single register. Previously the Councils and each housing association had their own housing registers and prospective tenants had to apply to each separately.
The new system aims to make it easier to apply for social housing and make the housing register easier to understand.
Under the new system, people who apply for social housing will be assessed to see if they meet certain statutory criteria, which will determine their level of housing need.
They will also be assessed as to their local connection with the area and community in which they want to live. The new system has a number of bands and only those people in the greatest and most urgent need will be in the higher bands and therefore get priority for housing.
