From 3rd December 2014 the Council will make a significant change to its Housing Allocations Policy to ensure that only those who have a strong connection to the Borough continue to be able to access social housing in Crawley. From this date housing register applicants will need to have lived continuously in the Borough of Crawley for 5 years in order for them to continue to qualify to be on the Housing Register.

You should be aware that it is a criminal offence if you either knowingly or recklessly make a statement which is false or withhold information which is relevant to the assessment of your application.
The Council will continue to check the details of your application even though it has already been approved. If the Council’s enquiries at any time disclose that you have committed such an offence, it will consider bringing a prosecution against you. The penalty for such an offence if you are found guilty is a fine up to £5,000. You will also be automatically disqualified from the housing register.
