Welcome to Breckland Key Select

Key Select is changing

We are moving Key Select onto a new system to help us provide you with an improved service.

To ensure a smooth transfer to the new system, Key Select will be unavailable to applicants from 24 June to 16 July this year.

We will be asking Housing Associations to advertise their properties in advance of the close; any that do become available during the closed period will be advertised on the new site as soon as it becomes available (see dates below). This will ensure applicants don't miss the opportunity to bid for any properties due to Key Select not being available.

Key Dates

- The existing Key Select service will close for registrations on 18 June 2015.

- The last bid cycle on the current Key Select will run from midnight on 17 June to midnight on 22 June 2015.

- The current Key Select service will open for applications and upgrading of existing applications on 16 July.

- The first bid cycle on the new Key Select will run from 16 July to midnight on 20 July 2015.

If there are any changes to these timings there will be a message posted on the Key Select web pages, the address for which will remain the same as it is now:

While the service is unavailable, we will continue to assist people on the emergency rehousing through the Breckland Housing Options Team on 01362 656833 or by email on

Scheme Information

To join the Breckland Housing Register you will need to complete an on-line application form. If you require help with this please click on the ‘Useful Information’ link for details of how to contact us.

When you register for affordable housing on the Breckland Key Select scheme, the system will automatically place you into one of the four housing needs bands as described in the Scheme Guide.

Unfortunately, due to the high demand for social housing, not all applicants are successful in obtaining a social housing property. Even those people who are placed in the top bands may have to make several applications over a period of time before they are successful. It is, therefore, essential that you consider other housing options to increase your chances of being re-housed. To find out more about other housing options available please click on the ‘Housing Options’ link.
