allocations/waiting list in a 1 bed private rental property who are
overcrowded

Peterborough City Council’s assesses overcrowding against its own bedroom
standards policy, which is defined in the allocations policy. This policy
allows:

 

·         one bedroom for a couple who are married, in a civil partnership
or cohabiting as if they were married or in a civil partnership

·         one bedroom for any other person aged 16 or over

·         one bedroom for any two children of the same sex aged at least
10 and under 16

·         one bedroom for any two children regardless of sex aged less
than 10

·         one bedroom for any other child

·         one additional bedroom for each carer of a member of the
household who is disabled or has a long-term health condition, provided
that it is essential that overnight care of that member of the household
is provided by a non-resident carer.

 

We will award priority on the housing register to those who are considered
to be overcrowded when applying the above criteria. Those considered to be
overcrowded by 1 bedroom are placed into band 2 on the housing register
and those overcrowded by 2 or more bedrooms are placed into band 1. 

 

 

If you no longer hold the allocations list please state the name of who
does
