Our promise to residents

Our promise to our residents

All homes will be genuinely affordable to make them suitable for local people on the council’s housing register.

We will build a mixture of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes – to meet the needs of a wide range of families and households.

10 per cent of the homes we build will be wheelchair accessible.

All the homes will be built to modern housing standards with a focus on energy efficiency.

The homes will be attractively designed, maximising light wherever possible.

We will always strive to ensure new developments fit with, respect and complement the existing estate and local environment.

We will work hard to minimise the loss of open space and, where possible, even provide new additional open space for our residents to enjoy.

New developments will be built in a way that minimises disruption for local residents and only uses contractors who are part of the ‘Considerate Contractor Scheme’.

We will consult fully on any proposals, making sure you always have an opportunity to influence changes that are happening in your community. You can see details of ongoing and past consultations on our housing consultations page.
