How can you help?
It may sound like a statement of the obvious, but we need land and money to help us do our work.
If there is evidence of housing need in a village then it may be possible for us to obtain planning permission on land which is outside of the development boundary.
Our housing schemes typically take up less than one acre so please contact us if you have any land which may be suitable for a small development of affordable housing to meet local needs.
However, in order to develop truly affordable housing we would probably only be able to pay a price of up to around five times agricultural value.
The only source of revenue funding we have is from the rents we charge on our homes.
These rents are regulated by the government so that they are affordable to those in low-paid employment.
We can obtain capital grants to assist with the costs of providing new homes but these typically only cover up to about 50%-60% of the total costs.
The balance of the costs are raised by loans from financial institutions.
Any donations or bequests to help us to meet our running costs or assist with the cost of building a new scheme would be most welcome.
Please contact our Chief Executive at email@example.com or on 01208 892000 if you want to find out more about how you can help.
