Melton Borough Council Housing Register


Melton Borough Council is preparing to move the housing register to a new system on the 23rd May 2022. All current applications have been entered onto the new system ready for when it goes live and correspondence will be sent to current applicants advising how they can access their application on the new system in due course. Any applications received on the 23rd May 2022 or later will not be processed. On this date Melton Borough Council's new Allocations Policy will also come into effect and some eligibility and banding criteria has been changed, a copy of new Allocations Policy will be able to be accessed on Melton Borough Council's website after this date.

To access social housing in Melton Borough, eligible applicants can apply to join the Melton Borough Council waiting list.   Please be aware that we are dealing with a high volume of applications at present and it is taking our teams longer than usual to process housing applications at the current time.   We are actively working through this backlog - if you have previously submitted an application, please be assured that this is being processed.

For new applicants, we aim to process applications within four to six weeks.  If you have an urgent housing need or need advice regarding your housing options, please contact our Customer Services team on 01664 502502.

Using this service gives you more choice in deciding where you want to live.  Instead of waiting for an offer of accommodation, you can see which properties are coming vacant and ask to be put forward for them.  Properties that are available for rent and shared ownership will be advertised each week.

You can tell us which properties you are interested in.  We call this 'bidding' but it won't cost you a penny.  Before you can bid for a property you must be accepted onto the Melton Borough Council housing register.

Please ensure you send all the required proofs in support of your application to  If you do not provide the requested proofs needed within 14 days then your application will not be processed and deleted from the system.  Click here to apply online using the online form.   

Not everyone will be successful in getting a council or housing association home.  Demand is much greater than the number of vacancies.  Check on the Recent Lets to find out if you are likely to be successful in the near future.

If you would like help to use this service or have any difficulties providing the required proofs, please contact our Customer Services/Housing Options Team who will be able to assist.
