We are changing the way the council housing waiting list works. Please refer to Housing Register changes for further details.
GDPR is the new European Regulation which supercedes the Data Protection Act from 25 May 2018.
The Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council online housing application will soon be amended to include a Privacy Statement which will explain what happens to your data that we collect.
All new applications will be asked if they understand and agree with the Privacy Statement before they proceed to enter any personal data.
Whilst the on-line application is being upgraded please refer to the Privacy Notice.
Blaby District Council, Oadby and Wigston Borough Council, North West Leicestershire District Council, Charnwood Borough Council and Harborough District Council have all left the Leicestershire Sub-Regional Partnership for Choice Based Lettings and are reintroducing their own system.
This means you will no longer be able to bid on properties in the above areas via the website.
If you are submitting a new application or still wish to be considered for properties in these areas, and have a connection to either of these councils you will need to apply to them directly.
Increased volumes of applications
Please note, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council are currently experiencing an increase in the number of housing applications that we are receiving. Any application for housing that is submitted, where the relevant supporting information is not supplied within 14 days after submission will not be considered, and closed. If you are unable to supply the supporting information indicated throughout the online application process, then please call a member of the Housing Options team on 01455 238141 to discuss this further.
Please note it may take up to three weeks during this busy period for your application to be picked up to be assessed by a Housing Registration Assessment Officer. If you are at risk of homelessness then please call and ask to speak to Housing Options Officer on 01455 238141.
