What does affordable housing mean?

Affordable housing is made up of social rented, affordable rented and intermediate housing (homes for part sale and part rent), provided to eligible households whose needs are not met by the market. Eligibility is determined by local incomes and local house prices.

Affordable housing should include provisions to remain at an affordable price for future eligible households or for the subsidy to be recycled for alternative affordable housing provision.

Our proposal is anticipated to provide 37 socially rented, 6 shared ownership and 18 open market homes, which equates to a 70% affordable homes contribution.
