Apply for housing in Eastbourne

Our aim is to help you explore the wide range of housing options available to you. Not everyone is eligible to apply for social housing in Eastbourne and we do not have enough houses for all of the applicants on our waiting list, so it is important we help you make the best housing choice based on your own personal circumstances. This online form is only applicable if you are within the Eastbourne borough. If you are within the Lewes district, please download and complete the PDF housing register application form for the Lewes district on our apply for housing page.

  • The first step is to complete our online housing self-assessment, starting with the Eligibility Form below. You must be logged in to use this service. If you have already started and saved your application, you can continue with it from here too.
  • This assessment will give you your own personalised housing action plan. Provided that you are eligible and have met the necessary requirements, this action plan might include the option to register for social housing in Eastbourne.
  • If you need help completing this form or if English is not your first language please get in touch with us. 
  • If you are concerned about where you will be staying tonight or in the next few days, please call us or come in to 1 Grove Road to speak to us. You do not need to complete this online form or make an appointment first.

You must be signed in to My Account to fill in this online form (why?) Sign in or register now and we'll bring you back to this page.
