Housing delivery strategy
Our housing delivery strategy and action plan have been put in place to help bring more genuinely affordable homes to the Vale of White Horse.
Our Housing Delivery Strategy
Our housing delivery strategy aims to meet current and future local housing needs and intends to bring more well-designed net zero carbon housing to help tackle climate change.
We already support new affordable homes in the district – Crofts Court development in Cumnor is being built by the Oxfordshire Community Land Trust and will have five one-bedroom and three two-bedroom flats. Furthermore, 80 new extra care homes on Great Western Park in Didcot will help people to live independently and have access to extra support on site.
We encourage developers to reduce the carbon impact by using sustainable materials, where possible, to help build affordable homes on some new developments. Recently 25 new net-zero homes were built in Kingston Bagpuize by Ssassy Property and Greencore Construction. The new homes are built in a way that means they do not produce any additional greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.
Our Housing Action Plan
Our housing action plan includes projects that could see a reduction of empty homes in the district and support for housing providers and residents apply for funding and grants to help retrofit their homes to maximise energy efficiency.
