Priority bands

Housing need is determined by assessing the current housing circumstances of applicants. A priority ‘band’ is then allocated according to the urgency of the housing need. There are three priority bands as follows:

Band A
This is the highest priority band and is only awarded to households with an emergency and very severe housing need.

Band B
This is the second highest band and is awarded to households with an urgent need to move.

Band C
This is the third band, and the lowest band awarded to households with an identified housing need.
