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.

Works are well underway with the re-development of an existing garage site at Coneybury, Bletchingley. This scheme will deliver three  x 2 bedroom houses and one x 2 bedroom bungalow, with parking and associated landscaping. We expect works to  complete in April 2018.

We have received planning consent to redevelop an existing garage site to the rear of 2-8 Meadway. This scheme will produce two x 1-bedroom flats, four x 2 bedroom flats and two x 2 bedroom houses, plus associated carparking and landscaping. Works will commence in March 2018, and complete in early 2019.

We have received planning consent to deliver new housing, replacing an existing car park adjacent to 238-240 Godstone Road. This scheme will produce eight x 2 bedroom flats, associated car parking and landscaping. Works will commence in the Spring of 2018, and we anticipate that the new homes will be ready to let in the Spring of 2019.

Associated with the above scheme, and in recognition of the local loss of car parking, we submitted and achieved planning consent to build a new car park on Hillside Road (6 spaces) and to add in additional parking spaces at Station Road carpark (3 spaces). We will be delivering these spaces ahead of commencing the building of our new housing scheme.  

 

We have received planning consent to redevelop ten existing sheltered flats and the one warden’s flat at The Court, to provide 19 high quality 1-bedroom flats together with communal facilities, landscaping and parking. We are proposing that works will start in the autumn of 2018.

We will shortly be submitting a planning application to redevelop two blocks of existing sheltered accommodation at Uplands, and to rebuild 20 new council homes; a mixture of houses and flats. These new homes would not be designated for older people, instead will be let to family households on our general housing register. Should we be successful in gaining a planning consent, works on this site will start when The Court redevelopment is complete.

We have submitted a planning application for 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 will shortly be submitting a planning application to convert a block of maisonettes at The Greenway into ten x 3-bedroom family homes.

We anticipate that a planning application will be submitted in April 2018, and subject to consent being granted and the existing maisonette residents being rehoused, we will be commencing building works early in 2019.
