Why we are building

Access to affordable social housing is key to building sustainable communities.

With the increasing cost and unpredictability of privately renting a property, affordable rented housing is in constant demand by working families, those who've retired and many more.

In the last three years (April 2017 to March 2020) we developed almost 600 new affordable homes. We have investment plans to build another 600 affordable homes across Wiltshire, Mendip, Bath and surrounding areas by 2023. These new affordable homes are for social rent, affordable rent and share ownership.

These properties will support people in having a stable and affordable home.

We work with a number of partners and local councils in developing new homes.

Whilst most of our new homes help to increase our social housing stock, any profits made from the sale of homes on the open market, are reinvested into future developments.

Shared ownership is a great way to get a foot on the housing ladder.
