Affordable housing

We are working to fulfil our promise of providing 350 affordable homes within five years – forming part of our strategic aim of providing housing to those who need it most.

The range of additional homes will provide solutions for a wide range of household sizes, ranging from one to four bed properties, all at social rent.

Homes already handed over have delighted new tenants in Hardings Close and Creffield Road. Currently in construction are new builds in Military Road, Buffett and Scarfe Way and Elfreda House sheltered housing scheme. There are also further garage sites (phase three) in the pre-planning stages.

All homes will be energy efficient, demonstrating the Council’s commitment to tackling the climate emergency.
