Do you have a Rural Connection?Published: Thursday 11 August 2022
In our rural communities applicants with a connection to the parish will be given greater priority for properties, this is called a “rural connection”. This means that if you have a connection you could be rehoused quicker in these areas.
For a rural connection you must meet one of the following criteria:
-Live in the parish & have done so for at least the last 12 months.
-Work in the parish in permanent paid employment.
-Have an immediate relative in the parish with which there is ongoing positive contact. Mother, father adult sibling or adult child (over 18yrs).
-Or have lived in the parish for three of the last five years.
Review your application now. An inaccurate rural connection can affect your queue position.
