If you are in a priority band, you will have received a letter explaining any changes to your application. This will also show your 'effective date' - the date that you applied for priority banding. This will be used to prioritise shortlists and ensure that households who have been in housing need for the longest get prioritised first.

A summary guide to the new policy is available here.

The full policy is available to read here.

The reports which went to Cabinet are available to read here.
