Report of the Strategic Director, Housing, Environment and Healthy Communities

Additional documents:


Consideration has been given to recommending the Council to approve the introduction of a Shared Ownership Policy in accordance with Homes England’s Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes Programme to underpin the delivery of new affordable Homes in the Borough.




The alternative option to that being recommended, but which was discounted, included withdrawing from the Homes England grant agreement and instead deliver the homes under a general needs’ affordable tenure.






That the Council be recommended to approve the Shared Ownership Policy as set out in appendix 2 to the report.




The above decision has been made to support the new houses being developed at Whitley Court, Wrekenton, as well as any future homes, which the Council wishes to make available for Shared Ownership.
