lived there and now wishing to return.
The property is then next prioritised for households from the
neighbouring parishes of Alpington, Yelverton, Brooke and

need to express their interest (‘bid’) through the South
Norfolk ‘HomeOptions’ website:

Register should contact the Housing Advice Service here at
South Norfolk Council to join the Housing Register

of their residency or working qualification criteria 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
