What is a banding system?
We use a banding system where there are four main bands of housing need. Band A, Band B, Band C and Band D. Band A is usually only applicable for those facing homelessness who have been accepted by Stafford Borough Council in accordance with the Homelessness Act (2002) and Localism Act (2011) or are unable to return to their home from hospital.
Band B applicants are considered to have a high level of housing need.
The criteria used for each banding is listed in the SARH Lettings policy. This will give you a good indication of your likely banding.
