In addition, the number of one bedroom properties built by Norfolk Homes has already increased the stock of small homes for rent in Poringland. Some of these also have a local connection cascade, which is applied when they become vacant.
This provides the possibility for single people and couples from Poringland to obtain a home locally.
Anyone already on the South Norfolk Housing Register will need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the South Norfolk 'HomeOptions' website:
Other interested residents who are not on the Housing Register should contact the Housing Advice Service here at South Norfolk Council to join the Housing Register ('HomeOptions'). They will need to provide proof of their residency qualification as well as other verification details. During the week that the properties are advertised on the HomeOptions system people will need to actively apply ‘(bid’) for them, and the Council’s Housing Officers will be able to provide details of how to do this. For further information people should telephone for free on: 0808 168 2222.
