Homeless decision review form
Please fill in this form if you want us to review a decision we have made about your homeless application. You must request a review within 21 days of when we told you about our decision. Review requests submitted outside of this timescale will not normally be considered.
An officer who is senior to and independent from the officer who made the original decision will review your case. The Council has 56 days to complete your review; more details will be provided to you on acceptance of the review. If you have completed a housing application form and want to review the decision made on your application, you must submit a Housing Needs Review Form
