Affordable Housing

Affordable Housing is provided to help people who cannot afford to buy or rent homes on the open market. The homes remain affordable to subsequent occupiers in the future. These homes can be provided by the Council, Housing Association some private landlords and increasingly, direct from house builders.

Affordable Housing Options

Affordable housing is best described as housing provided at prices below the prevailing market value for people who are unable to find a suitable home on the open market (primarily due to its price). Affordable housing can be provided on a rental or Homeownership basis.
