c. We are unable to provide an average wait (including application process) due to differences in application dates, lists and circumstances.

We assess all applicants for housing on a fair and consistent manner.  The placing on the waiting list is determined by the number of points awarded on the basis of current circumstances.  This list is open to anyone over the age of 16.  An applicant can initially apply for housing and be placed on the waiting list. If their circumstances change e.g. Notice of termination of forces accommodation they can move to the homeless list.

Applicants on the homeless list will have no points awarded and placing will be determined by the date of the homeless application unless there are exceptional circumstances that merit an urgent offer of accommodation.

The process of re-settlement for armed service personnel can begin as early as two years prior to discharge depending on the length of service.  Prior to discharge the MOD issue a Certificate of Cessation of Entitlement to Occupy Service Accommodation, usually 6 months before discharge but can be up to 3 months prior to discharge depending on the reason for discharge.

d. See above
