2. Assessing your housing need

Your housing application will be placed into one of our five housing bands depending on how urgently you need re-housing.

There are four main bands into which applications are placed:

  • high housing need (B)
  • medium housing need (C)
  • low housing need (D)
  • no housing need (E)

In some circumstances your need for housing may be assessed as so urgent that you may be placed in the emergency housing need band (A).
