Affordable Housing Development - July update

The development of the affordable houses is continuing at a significant pace.


  • The access road to the dwellings has now been completed subject to a final top dressing.

  • The footpath through the site is now re-opened.

  • All services are now connected to the site. BT will be providing fibre connections.

  • All 12 dwellings are well above ground level and the roofs are currently being completed on the 2 bungalows at the rear.

  • Initial internal works are expected to start soon on these 2 properties.

  • All planning conditions have now been satisfied and agreed with HDC except a minor one on street lighting.


General

There is expected to be a short partial road closure on the B661 to accommodate final integration of all services in early August.


Occupation of the Properties

The dwellings are now expected to be ready for occupation early 2023. Any applicants for both the rented properties and the shared ownership will be assessed against the local criterion. Discussions on the timing and process are about to take place between the CLT and Chorus letting. Further updates will be provided.

Shared Ownership

It is the intention to try to sell the shared ownership off of plans.

People need to register with the Help to Buy agent for the south of England https://www.helptobuyagent3.org.uk/ . These databases will hold much of the key information required and will be cross checked against the names on the e-mail register above.

The shared ownership plots have been valued 100% as follows: The portion to be included in any purchase needs to be negotiated.

2 bed house £255,000

3 bed house £310,000

However, these prices are subject to revision and will be revalued 3 months prior to the sales completion date.

Rented Accommodation

People need to be registered on the HDC Homelink system https://www.home-link.org.uk/choice/

The rents for the social rent properties are already set and won’t change. They are:

1 bed flat £84.53 per week

2 bed house £113.26

2 bed bungalow £108.38

3 bed house £124.91
