The Housing Policy and Development Team work closely with a wide range of partners to build affordable homes, improve existing housing and help people find and keep suitable homes. High house prices and rents are a particular problem in our area, so the development of new genuinely affordable homes to meet the needs of local people is a key priority for us. Similarly, it is vital that all our new homes are sustainable, accessible, well-designed and well-managed.
We have a strong track record of partnership working. We have helped to deliver over 2,709 affordable homes in the last ten years.
