Housing services during Covid 19 pandemic

Whilst some housing services may be affected by the current pandemic, most office-based staff are able to work remotely in order to keep key services running.

There is currently extremely high demand for social housing in Cherwell district. We are working as hard as possible to support all applicants to the housing register but must advise clients to expect increased waiting times during the process. We thank all applicants in advance for their understanding and patience.

We will continue to try and provide you with the best possible service during this time and should you need us, our contact details are as follows:
