Developing affordable housing
Since the transfer of our housing stock to HomeZone Housing Association in 1997 (now known as Bromford), we have worked closely with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and our approved housing association development partners Bromford, Midland Heart and Waterloo to maintain an affordable housing development programme. We provide properties in all areas of the district, both for rent and shared ownership.
We also work alongside our development services team to negotiate with housing developers to ensure new housing developments provide housing opportunities for a wider range of people. All new housing developments over 15 units, have to contain a mixture of rented, shared ownership and owner occupied properties.
Some developments have also included housing with support, for the more vulnerable people in society. These developments have been developed in partnership with Staffordshire County Council.
If you are interested in shared ownership please contact Help to Buy - the government sponsored agent for the Midlands. For more information, visit the Help to Buy website.
All social rented properties in the district are allocated through Homes Direct - the choice based system.
