Children in flats points (transfer band)
We recognise that there are currently council tenants living in flats with children aged 15 and under. Some of these tenants are overcrowded and will be awarded points to reflect this, but some households were not eligible for any points, for example, a parent with one child in a two-bedroom flat.
We now award 25 points to households with children in flats who are not overcrowded to recognise their housing need.
These points will only apply to current council tenants registered in the transfer band.
