Affordable housing

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.

Apply for an affordable house

To apply for a shared ownership home, you will need to register with Help to Buy South.

To be considered for an affordable rented house, you will need to apply to join the council’s housing register. Find out more information on our housing register page.
