Applying for a home

We welcome applications from all people who share the Tenant Board’s vision and who want to help make Bushbury Hill a happy, healthy and vibrant place in which to live.

Who can apply?

You have to be entitled to hold a council tenancy, if you are not sure if this applies to you then please contact us.

How popular is Bushbury Hill?

Since taking on management of Bushbury Hill in 1998 the Tenant Managers have made Bushbury Hill a place where lots of people want to live. Our success is reflected in the popularity of the estate with more than 30 applicants, on average, for every available home.

How many homes are available?

Bushbury Hill is a settled community with some residents having lived in the area since the estate was built. Bushbury Hill EMB seeks to maintain and support the community by providing homes that people want to stay in and raise their families. In a typical year we will only have 25-35 homes become available to let. Most of these will be 2 or 3 bedroom family houses with smaller numbers of bungalows and flats.

Mutal Exchange/Homeswapper

Mutual exchange is an excellent way for tenants to move to a home or an area that suits them better.  If you have found someone that you would like to swap with, you must first obtain landlord’s consent.

Tenants for both properties must complete a Mutual Exchange Form.

HomeSwapper is a service that helps tenants find other tenants to exchange homes with. To find out more and to join go to

Membership of HomeSwapper is FREE for Bushbury Hill EMB tenants. In order to take advantage of this you must select ‘Bushbury Hill EMB’ as your landlord during registration.
