Affordable housing developments

Securing the delivery of affordable housing remains one of the strategic priorities for Boston Borough Council.

We achieve this through working in partnership with developers, Registered Providers (Housing Associations) and the Homes England, and through using the planning system to secure affordable housing developer contributions.

In addition the Council has an ongoing affordable housing development programme with Waterloo Housing Group to deliver new affordable homes in the borough. This is partially funded by the Council in conjunction with funding from Waterloo Housing and Homes England. Details of the work currently being completed by the partnership with Waterloo Housing Group can be found in Related documents. Further information on Homes England can be found at Gov.UK.

The need for affordable housing in the borough is evidenced from Strategic Housing Market Assessments for the area and then further refined by an Affordable Housing Demand Survey of households on the Boston Common Housing Register.

Boston Borough Council's housing and planning services will assist and advise developers and registered providers about affordable housing policy requirements and the type of provision needed within the borough to meet the needs of local households.

New affordable properties for rent will be advertised through the Boston Borough Choice Based Lettings Scheme when they are close to completion. Details of Current developments can be found on the link above. Alternatively, affordable home-ownership options including shared ownership (part purchase and part rent) can be found on the Help to Buy Midlands website - see Useful links.

Any developers or Registered Provider who wish to discuss potential schemes for affordable housing or affordable housing requirement should contact the Housing Strategy team.
