Weedon Hill/Buckingham Park

Weedon Hill/Buckingham Park

AVDC works with its preferred Housing Association Partners or Registered Providers (RPs) to deliver affordable housing in the district. AVDC's current preferred partner group consists of :-

Sanctuary Group
Paradigm Housing Group
Sovereign
Hightown Praetorian & Churches
Guinness Partnership (with Vale of Aylesbury Housing Trust)
Catalyst Housing Group
Aldwyck

The council, in partnership with its partner RPs, has delivered and continues to deliver new developments right across the district and we have secured grant funding from the government to assist in delivering these schemes. Our partner RPs have been chosen because of their expertise in development, high standards of design and specification, partnership working, resident and community involvement and management skills. Since 2011, working with the Homes and Communities Agency, we were successful in delivering 446 homes for rent, shared ownership, and supported housing. The Housing Development Team, who are responsible for affordable housing development in the district, work closely with the Planning department to ensure homes are built in the right areas of the district.
