Join the Poole housing register

New applicants

The housing waiting lists for the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area are now closed.

This means that we are not taking any new applications for social housing for the three separate registers.

This is because we are moving to a new single waiting list in September, and we will be re-opening for applications at that point.

If you applied before the 1 June, we will continue to assess your application.

If you are homeless, or threatened with homelessness, fleeing violence of abuse or have an urgent/emergency need to move, please telephone 01202 123 147  or email us at

Existing applicants

There are no changes for existing applicants. 

Property Adverts

Properties will continue to be advertised through Dorset Homechoice until the new BCP Homechoice website is launched in September. 

Next Steps

During July we will start to contact our most vulnerable applicants to start to re-assess their applications.

All other applicants will then be able to apply for the new register from 1st September and begin to start advertising properties on the new system.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact
