Providing the homes people want, where they are needed
Successfully deliver one of the largest affordable development programmes in the Midlands and East of England, building the right mix of social, affordable rent, shared ownership, private rented and sales homes to meet local need.
During the life of this strategy, our ambition is to build up to 700 homes each year, creating homes for people to rent or buy, at prices they can afford and in places they want to live.
We will invest wisely to maintain our homes, ensuring they are fit for purpose and located where services can be provided effectively and efficiently.
