Housing Solutions



Welcome to the
Housing Solutions Wizard.

This tool will ask a series of questions and then guide you through the different solutions you can explore to enhance your housing situation.

Why not just wait for a Social Housing tenancy?

Social Housing is in great demand and often people can wait a long time. There are fewer than 10,000 social housing homes in the borough and there are currently 2600 households registered for social housing, whilst less than 800 homes became available to rent during the last 12 months.

What housing solutions are available?

There are lots of different solutions available but they are not suitable for everyone. Using this wizard you will be able to see which solutions are suitable for you. Some of the available solutions include:

  • Shared Ownership
  • Mutual Exchange
  • Social Housing
  • Retirement Housing
  • Private Rented

Please note this website is not an application to join the housing register or to apply to the council as homeless. 

If you need urgent advice because you are about to become homeless, please contact the Housing Solutions Team on 01495 742301/742303
