Affordable housing developments

We work with housing associations, developers, landowners, local communities and the Homes and Communities Agency to secure sites and funding for new affordable housing. We are also delivering our own new build council housing. Affordable housing includes rented and shared ownership homes. To apply for rented homes, you will need to join our housing register.

To find out how to apply for shared ownership homes please visit our Help to Buy page. 

Below are details of the new council homes that we are proud to be delivering across the district.

Continuing with our programme of providing high quality affordable council housing, we completed ten new homes, just prior to Christmas 2017 for local people in the village of Bletchingley.  It is a rural exception scheme, built using land on the edge of a Council-owned playing field and includes 1, 2 and 3 bedroom homes for people with a strong local connection.

In May 2018 we completed our re-development of an existing garage site at Coneybury, Bletchingley. This scheme includes three x 2 bedroom houses and one x 2 bedroom bungalow, with parking and associated landscaping.

In February 2019 we completed our re-development of a garage site to the rear of 2-8 Meadway. The scheme produced two x 1-bedroom flats, four x 2-bedroom flats and two x 2-bedroom houses, with associated car parking and landscaping. These properties have now been let to households registered on our Housing Register.

We are currently building new homes on land formerly used as a car park, adjacent to 238-240 Godstone Road. This scheme will produce eight x 2 bedroom flats, associated car parking and landscaping. We anticipate that the new homes will be ready to let in the summer of 2019.

Associated with the above scheme, and in recognition of the local loss of car parking, we have built a new car park on Hillside Road (6 spaces) and added in additional parking spaces at Station Road car park (3 spaces).

We are on-site, undertaking building works to redevelop ten existing sheltered flats and the one warden’s flat at The Court. The end result will be 19 high quality 1-bedroom flats together with communal facilities, landscaping and parking. The work will be completed in early 2020.

We have successfully achieved a planning consent to redevelop two blocks of existing sheltered accommodation at Uplands, and to rebuild 21 new council homes; a mixture of houses and flats. These new homes will not be designated for older people, instead will be let to family households on our general housing register. Works on this site will start when The Court redevelopment is complete.

We have commenced the construction of three x 1-bedroom bungalows, with associated parking and landscaping on a piece of Council owned open space on Barnfield Way, Hurst Green. We intend to let these properties to local Council tenants looking to downsize their accommodation. We anticipate that this project will be complete in December 2019.

We have been successful in securing a planning consent to convert an existing block of maisonettes at The Greenway into nine x 3-bedroom family homes, convert a common room into a 2-bedroom bungalow, construct two new car-parking areas, and improve the surrounding landscape. We will be commencing building works in the summer of 2019.

The Council has bought Bronzeoak House in Stafford Road, Caterham, an empty building which has become derelict over the past two years, attracting anti-social behaviour. The site benefits from a central location in Caterham with good access to local shops and public transport and was purchased for £2.2 million. The property was formerly a health centre, but for the past few years has been used for office accommodation.
The property has planning consent for 34 flats, but the Council is considering alternative options for the best use of the site. Its closeness to the town centre makes it an ideal location for affordable rented housing for which there is a huge demand in the area.
