Council housing - applications - A to Z
Anyone aged 16 or over can put their name on East Lothian's housing application list. However, a needs-based points system applies, and you will have to wait for a house.
The Council no longer awards waiting time points for applicants; since 2007 our policy has prioritised housing need. The new system was brought in to cope with a severe shortage of houses and implemented after a wide-ranging consultation.
