Eastbourne Borough Council, Eastbourne Homes and Lewes District Council are coming together to provide an enhanced single housing service for both areas under the banner of Homes First.
As part of this initiative we are looking at our policies to bring them up-to-date and make them more consistent. This will enable our staff to work more effectively and provide a better service across both areas.
Our draft Housing Allocations Policy explains who is eligible to join our Housing Register and how we prioritise applications. The policy aims to benefit those with the most urgent housing needs.
The policy includes information on who can join the Housing Register, how to apply and how to bid for a home.
