The council has bungalows in most parts of Chesterfield. In general, there is quite a high demand for bungalows. When these bungalows are empty, they are normally made available to those people on our housing register who need them most. In accordance with council policy, bungalows are normally allocated to people of pensionable age or to people with a qualifying disability.
However, there is a higher supply of some good-quality, lower-demand bungalows. These tend to be one-bedroom properties in neighbourhoods that are a little more distant from Chesterfield town centre. When they become empty, these may be available to people who do not have much priority on our housing list.
The properties available in higher supply may be made available to people who have a low priority or who live outside of the borough if there is no local demand.
Seventy-five per cent of bungalows that become vacant will be advertised with a preference to current Chesterfield Borough Council tenants. Twenty-five per cent of bungalows that become vacant will be advertised with a preference to non-council tenants.
Applications are welcomed from people currently living outside of Chesterfield.
All properties which are going to be available to let are advertised on the council's On the Move website (opens in new window).
