Social Housing – How to apply
I have been getting a lot of questions about the 30 new social housing being built in Porthleven. I have been asked how someone goes about applying for one, and/or have people been assigned to them. After I have dealt with the questions I ask one simple one back. Have you completed the Homechoice application from Cornwall Council? In nine out of ten times they reply what’s that, or no.
In a lot of cases I am able to hand them an application form (as I normally have some close to hand). If not, I tell them to go to their nearest One Stop Shop, or they can apply online. I completed Homechoice myself online, and found it easy to use without much hassle. I completed the whole process in about 10 minutes.
If you do want to be eligible for any type of social housing then you MUST fill in this form. If you don’t, then you stand no chance of even being considered. Below are the links to the online application.
