There is a significant national shortfall in the number of affordable homes available to rent or to buy on a shared ownership basis.
This shortfall is reflected in our district, especially with the huge disparity between property prices and income, which has meant that many young families have had to move away as they are unable to afford to stay within their community.
We have successfully worked with housing association partners over many years to build new affordable homes in villages across the district, and we continue to do so. The number of new affordable homes built is on average between 200 and 300 per year.
