Grant funding now available for new affordable homes
A supply of good quality, affordable, housing for local people is one of our main corporate priorities.
Grant funding is now available to Registered Providers and others for the delivery of new affordable homes across our district. Affordability, the environment and value for money will be key considerations in assessing applications.
We recommend you read through the guidance notes before you submit an application.
Once completed, please return your form to our Affordable Housing Team via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work in partnership with several organisations and agencies to provide affordable homes to people living in our district. On new developments, we aim for a mix of rented and affordable home ownership to be built on sites that have ten or more dwellings.
