Number of affordable homes developed in rural communities


Number of affordable homes built in communities of less than 3,000 people

Our ambition is to provide for a mix of good quality, sustainable housing development of the right size, type, tenure and affordability to meet the housing needs and aspirations of all sections of the community.

In responding to the housing need, we propose a broad range of affordable housing options which are available to qualifying people. These provide residents with access to well designed, high quality and environmentally sustainable housing at affordable prices, regardless of property size and tenure.

These homes can be for either affordable, discounted rent or low-cost home ownership, such as shared ownership.

In the year to March 2021 a total of 134 affordable homes were developed in rural communities where the population is less than 3,000. This is an increase on the 46 homes delivered in the previous year.
