Prioritising Applications


Your priority on the scheme is determined by your band and registration date.

All eligible applications will be placed, by the South Norfolk Home Options officers, into one of the following five bands according to the level of housing need:

  • Emergency Band
  • Gold Band
  • Silver Band
  • Bronze Band
  • Low Need Band

For more information about prioritising applications, please see the South Norfolk Home Options Allocations policy on the Home page of this website.

What determines my registration date?

All applicants will be awarded a registration date. This is essentially the date you applied to join the South Norfolk Home Options housing register. This date will determine who is successful in being offered a property where two or more people from the same band apply for the same property. The date that will be used is as follows:

  • Statutorily homeless applicants – the date that they applied as homeless to South Norfolk Council.
  • Emergency band – the date of award of emergency band (if the applicant is statutorily homeless and currently accommodated in bed and breakfast accommodation or its equivalent then it would be the date of the homelessness application)
  • All other applicants (including transfers) the date their registration form was received for assessment by South Norfolk Council.

If your circumstances change and you move up a band then your new registration date will be the date you informed us of the change. If your circumstances change and you move down a band then you will keep your original registration date.
