4. Eligibility - Who is not eligible

The Council cannot by law allocate housing accommodation to anyone who is subject to immigration control within the meaning of the Asylum and Immigration Act (1996) unless they fall within a class exempted from this restriction by Government regulations.

In addition, the Council cannot, by law, allocate housing accommodation to other classes of persons from abroad if Government regulations dictate we cannot. Please visit the DHC website for more information relating to non-eligible applicants.
