Councillor Janine Bridges, cabinet member for housing, neighbourhoods and community safety, said:
The £1 house scheme has received worldwide media attention and has really put Stoke-on-Trent on the map as an innovative city that isn’t afraid to take on a challenge.
However, this exciting opportunity is exclusively available to residents of Stoke-on-Trent and I would urge people who meet the eligibility criteria and want to get a foot on the property ladder to apply before the deadline on Monday.
“This major regeneration scheme will not only transform the appearance of the Portland Street area, it will also transform the lives both of new and existing residents. It is a once in a lifetime chance and I would encourage house hunters to make the most of it.”
