Apply for Affordable Housing

The Council has changed the way you can apply to the housing register for affordable housing. The Council has introduced a choice based letting system called Breckland Key Select.

Housing association properties for rent or sale will be advertised through Breckland Key Select when they are available. To be considered for a property, applicants registered on the system will be able to 'bid' ( which is to express an interest in a property, there are no payments  involved). Only applicants registered on Breckland Key Select will be able to bid. 

You can find out more information and also register on the new scheme on

The Housing Allocations policy sets out how Breckland Council will prioritise people who apply to the housing register. If you would like to learn more, please visit:  Scheme Guide.
