What does local connection mean?
To establish an official local connection you would need to:
- Currently live in the Stafford Borough Council area where the properties are located for a set period of time
- Have permanent employment in the area
- Have close family connections living in the area for a set period of time
Applicants without a local connection can still apply to be on the housing register, however where a local connection applies, the number of connections met will be looked at first, then banding of their application and then date of registration.
