Dunedin City Council – Kaunihera-a-rohe o Otepoti

Information for people wishing to apply for Dunedin City Council Community Housing.

We may be able to help if:

  • You are a New Zealand citizen
  • Are permitted to reside here permanently
  • You are over 18 years of age at the time of application
  • We are satisfied that you will be a good tenant

Because resources are limited, our community housing is targeted to those who most need it. If your application is approved, we will place you into one of four priority groups, according to your circumstances. The higher your priority, the more likely you are to be housed.


Your circumstances, including assets and income are used to assess the priority your application receives and the rent you will pay. There are two levels of rent, which are based on priority. You will be advised of the rental rate when a flat is offered to you.

How do you apply?

More information about eligibility, costs and applications is available in our information booklet. Once you have read this information, fill out the application form and post or hand deliver it to us. This is available for download from the related information area of this page.

The application is a statutory declaration and must be signed in the presence of a DCC Tenancy Manager, Justice of the Peace or a solicitor.

If you have any more enquiries, contact the DCC on 03 477 4000.
