Size of Housing
The size of accommodation we offer you will depend on the size and needs of your household.  The table below sets out the size of house we will assess you as needing according to the number of people in your household.  You will not be offered housing that would result in your being overcrowded.  You will be able to apply for any size of house, but when we are allocating houses, we will always give priority to the applicant whose household best matches the property size.
