How do I get onto the Council's housing waiting list?

Cheltenham no longer has a waiting list which allocates points.

Gloucestershire Homeseeker is an online application system where you can:

  • view properties that come available,
  • express an interest in properties you are eligible for by placing a bid,
  • place up to 3 bids each week (the bidding week is from Tuesday to Wednesday)
  • view your housing application
  • change your housing application when your situation changes

Gloucestershire Homeseeker allows you to take control of your housing application and chose properties you want to live in.

The landlord that places the property advert will shortlist the applicants, and then allocate the property according to highest priority.

The Gloucestershire Homeseeker website has much more information and will tell you more about applying, bidding and your eligibility.
