Application Form

If you have already completed an application then you can register for immediate access to your account here.

Please remember a council home is only one of the housing options available to you, only approximately 700 households out of 3600 households on the waiting list are housed each year. Renting in the private sector is another housing option and if you require some help in seeking a private let or threatened with homeless you can contact our Housing Prevention Team on hoptions@swindon.gov.uk

We are currently experiencing a high number of applications and this means that we will take longer to process your housing application. This may mean we will not approve your application or contact you until around 8 weeks from your date of application. Please be patient with us and do not re-apply as we will be assessing applications in date order. You will be registered from the date of application so the time will not be lost; if you are accepted onto the Housing Register, your banding date will be the date of your application. Applications where a household is in emergency need will be prioritised. Please note that those who are applying due to receiving a notice to quit from their Landlord should email hoptions@swindon.gov.uk . Social housing is in high demand and waiting times are long and rehousing will not be addressed within timescales of a notice from your landlord and therefore our Options Team can assist with other housing options.

The information you enter is securely stored on our system and can be retrieved within 90 days of your last update to the application form.
