£7.75 million to build new homes

We've received £7.75 million in HCA (Homes and Communities Agency) funding to help build 257 new homes by 2021.

The homes will be built across the region, although exact sites have not yet been identified. They will be a variety of house types, depending on the local housing need.

There will be 200 affordable social homes, 32 specialist homes and 25 shared ownership homes - meeting the criteria of the HCA Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme 2016-2021.

The specialist homes will include wheelchair accessible bungalows.

Talks are also underway about the possible provision of a dementia care scheme.

Martin Phillips, our Development Manager, said: “We’re really pleased to have received this funding to enable us to build much needed affordable housing in the region.

“We’re also excited to be able to further develop our shared ownership stock, which will support local people to get on the property ladder in an affordable way."
