Part of the Council’s response to the housing crisis has been to develop an innovative ‘New Homes for Neighbourhoods’ programme, with an ambition to build at least 500 new council homes. The programme has been successful and has completed 13 new build projects with more onsite, in planning or at other stages in the programme pipeline.
