Waiting Time Calculator

The Waiting Time Calculator provides information to help people who have applied for or are thinking of applying for housing through the Council's housing register, in order to decide whether social housing is right for them. This includes details of:

  • Where the housing associations have properties
  • The number of lettings in various areas of the borough
  • The number of applicants waiting to be housed
  • Estimated waiting times

Terms of Use

The Waiting Time Calculator is provided as an interactive guide to allow users to consider the length of time it may take to be housed in a housing association property through nomination by the Council to a housing association.


The data used to supply the information is taken from snapshots updated at intervals, and should be used with caution. Whilst every care is taken to ensure the accuracy of the data used, errors may occur.


Also, estimated waiting times calculated here are based on historic data (i.e. the last 12 months) - there is no guarantee that the same pattern of lets will be seen in the next 12 months. For these reasons, these figures should only ever be used as a rough estimate when considering waiting times.


Please note that older persons' accommodation includes properties that have been designated for an older age group (usually over 50 or 55 years).


It is very important to note that the Waiting Time Calculator only applies to applicants in Band A and Band B. The estimated waiting times calculated here do not take into account applicants who are in the Priority Band in need of immediate housing. For these reasons, these figures should only be used as a rough estimate of the number of applicants ahead of you on the waiting list.


As applicants can change the areas where they wish to be housed, it can also mean that the number of applicants ahead of you on the waiting list for a particular area could change.
