Request a review of a housing register decision

You can request a review of the decision for a number of reasons:

  • you have been told that you do not qualify to join the housing register as you have no housing need
  • you have been disqualified from joining the housing register
  • you do not agree with the banding you have been awarded
  • you do not agree with the housing type that you qualify for

Details of the decision are in your decision letter. More information is available in the housing register and allocations policy.

If you do not agree with the decision then you can request a review. You can request a review by contacting a senior housing practitioner on 01202 123 147.

You must request a review within 21 days of receiving your decision letter. An officer who was independent of those who made the original decision will review the decision and notify you of the outcome of the review within 56 days. There is no right to appeal the review decision, although you can challenge it through judicial review. You are likely to need legal advice if you want to consider this option.
