There is a significant shortage in the supply and availability of homes to rent and buy in the borough and homelessness is increasing locally. The construction of more homes, as set out in the Local Plan, is a high priority.

Our innovative Affordable Housing Programme aims to deliver as many new homes as possible, using a combination of;

  • building new homes on suitable site locations
  • purchasing properties that are in demand
  • joint ventures with other organisations
  • adapting, extending, redeveloping and regenerating our existing housing stock (subject to planning consent, economic viability and access to funding required to build them).
