Update: water supply issues in the GU1, GU2, GU3, GU4 and GU5 areas has been resolved

The majority of customers' supply should have returned by now. However for those who are still without supply, this will be as a result of air pockets. Read advice from Thames Water about no water or low pressure

If you are still experiencing issues with your water supply this morning you can get free bottled water from a Thames Water bottled water station. For water stations opening times and updates, visit Thames Water website.

If you need support from an engineer to get your water supply back to normal, please call Thames Water on 0800 316 9800.

Prioritising applications

How do we prioritise your Housing Register application?

Once we have accepted you onto the Housing Register, we assess your housing needs based on a banding system.

The banding scheme is explained in the housing allocation scheme (PDF) [697KB] .

Housing needs vary, for example, you may:

  • live somewhere that has a serious effect on the your health
  • are an under-occupying household and want to downsize
  • you need to move so your current council property can be repaired or modernised

Waiting times vary depending on a number of different factors:

  • priority banding
  • the number of bedrooms you need 
  • how selective you are over the type of property you want to live in
  • how selective you are over where in the borough you want to live in
