Affordable housing developments

How is affordable housing delivered?

Affordable housing development usually happens when:

Housing associations

We do not build or own housing, but we do work with housing associations that own and manage the housing. The links opposite will take you to the websites of housing associations that have homes in this district.

How to register your interest for new build affordable homes

If you are interested in any of the rental properties on the developments being built page and if you think you may have a housing need you will need to apply to join our housing register.

If you are interested in any of the shared ownership properties on the developments being built page you will need to register with Help to Buy Midlands.

Completed affordable homes

We have provided information and photographs for recently completed developments.

Applying for new homes on rural schemes

On many newly built developments in rural areas which include affordable housing, an agreement is made between us and the housing association (who will own and manage the homes), so that homes are offered in the first instance to people who have a local connection to where the development is taking place. This usually requires the applicant to have lived, worked or be employed locally for a number of years. The exact details of a local connection requirement are agreed jointly between us and the local parish council.

When a new affordable housing development is completed in a particular location, which includes either rented or shared ownership properties, we will consider people who have expressed an interest in being considered for properties in that location as follows:

Rental homes we will complete nominations to rental homes, giving priority to applicants who can demonstrate their local connection to the area in which the new development is taking place.

Low cost home ownership (shared ownership) on request, we will forward to the housing association, a list of people on the Help To Buy Midlands Register who have expressed an interest in the properties and can demonstrate a local connection to the area in which the new development is taking place. The housing association will carry out financial assessments with the applicants.
