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.
