We provide affordable housing for local people. We do this by working with private developers and housing associations.
We normally make developers build 30% of housing on new developments as affordable. These can be affordable homes for rent or for affordable home ownership. For smaller sites in villages (six to ten homes), this may instead be a payment from the developer. This is then used to provide affordable housing at another local location.
Other schemes sometimes receive funding from government's Homes England . This can lead to sites with 100% affordable housing.
Our target for affordable homes is 40 homes per year.
