New home owners
Affordable home ownership in Aylesbury Vale and the surrounding area.
The basic human need for somewhere to call "home" is universally recognised. But what if you, a relation or a friend cannot afford a decent home? Or what if you already have a good home, but your community would benefit from some additional homes to help ensure it has a sustainable future? This is why the district council recognises the importance of ensuring a healthy supply of affordable, sustainable, well-designed and well-built homes for the well-being of local people and communities.
Working in partnership
The council is pursuing initiatives to maintain a balanced housing market and boost the supply of affordable, sustainable, homes for local people. This complements our work to maintain the quality of the district's existing housing stock.
While the district council does not develop housing itself, we do work closely with a wide range of partners to enable the provision of new homes. Especially, we work with our local communities and in partnership with housing associations and others.
Current affordable housing developments
There are a number of new residential developments under construction, which will result in the completion of hundreds of new affordable homes. The sites which are currently under construction or planned for the district can be found in the Affordable Home Ownership in Aylesbury Vale document (see link below).
