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 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.

In September 2019 we completed the redevelopment of the former car park, adjacent to 238-240 Godstone Road and produced eight x 2 bedroom flats, associated car parking and landscaping. The properties, known as Flint Place, have now been let to households registered on our housing register.

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 summer 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.

In December 2019 we completed 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. The properties have been let to existing Council tenants who were looking to downsize their accommodation.

We have commenced the conversion of  a block of maisonettes at The Greenway into nine x 3-bedroom family homes. We are also converting the common room into a 2-bedroom wheelchair accessible bungalow.  The project will also involve constructing two new car-parking areas and improving the surrounding landscape. We hope to complete the building works in the early summer of 2020.

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. Construction is expected to start on site in the summer of 2020 with completion anticipated for late autumn 2021.
