We will continue to allocate to those in band one or who are in emergency situations, including homelessness through direct matches and will continue to advertise Housing Association properties the normal way.

City Hall is open for a limited service on an appointment only basis.  Appointments will ONLY be offered on an exceptional basis for matters that cannot be dealt with by telephone or email.  No ‘walk-in’ service will be available for the Housing Solutions Team.
