The council have updated their interactive council housing map, that shows the demand per area in the county borough.

WCBC say, “We have a growing waiting list for those who want to apply for council housing, alongside the demand for specific housing locations.

“When applying for council housing you are able to select your desired location, which you may choose due to family, school choices, travel time for work or other personal reasons. Some locations have a higher demand than others, and it is useful to know this when applying.

“We have recently updated our council housing map with the current demand figures for you to refer to before you apply. This allows an easier decision for you to make on your location.”

“If we have decided that you are homeless we may be able to help you find accommodation through other social or private landlords in the areas shown on the map. Please contact our Housing Options team about this.

The interactive map can be found here, and is a custom Google Map, with hot spots tappable/clickable that will bring up specific data for that area.

For example, for New Broughton, it shows:

Number on housing register: 53
