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.

For more information on shared ownership and how to apply please visit the shared ownership homes website

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

In June 2022, construction started on this site to deliver 2 x 2 bed houses and 1 x 3 bed house. The homes will be the first in the Council's programme to be net zero carbon operationally. Expected completion in Spring 2024

The former health centre in Stafford Road, Caterham was purchased by the Council for £2.2 million. The derelict building had become a focal point for anti-social behaviour and the Council bought it with existing planning consent for 34 flats. The town centre location makes it an ideal location for affordable rented housing for which there is a huge demand in the area. The Council gained planning approval in December 2019 to construct 26 flats for affordable rent, including 14 x sheltered housing flats, associated parking and landscaping works. Work started on site in December 2020 and is due to be completed in 2024.
