The council's Housing Needs team has a common Housing Register and a joint allocations policy which was agreed in partnership with ten housing associations who have accommodation in Peterborough. This forms the Peterborough Homes partnership.
Properties that become available through housing associations in the Peterborough Homes partnership are advertised through the Choice Based Lettings scheme and Peterborough Homes Housing Jigsaw website.
Anyone aged 16 or over (including those with no fixed abode) may be placed on the housing register, except for:
- people from abroad subject to immigration control or regulations
- people prescribed as ineligible by regulations made by the Secretary of State
- people we consider unsuitable tenants due to unacceptable behaviour.
Please note: In order to provide housing solutions as efficiently as possible, we do not accept paper applications.
