The advice I have most often received from Tamworth Borough Council on housing issues is that to provide yourself with the best opportunity of securing a property, you should bid on as many suitable properties in the area as possible.
To discuss your housing options fully you can make an appointment with a Housing Solutions Advisor from the Housing Solutions Team. Appointments are offered in the mornings on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, or afternoons on Wednesday or Thursday. These can be booked by calling 01827 709709. Alternatively an appointment can be made to discuss your options over the phone. I would advise that you do this.
