New Homes Programme
The cost and affordability of housing in Winchester District is a serious problem. There is a genuine shortage of affordable properties in Winchester, with demand for affordable homes massively outstripping supply and the number of people on the waiting list is increasing monthly.
Providing affordable housing can help tackle these problems and delivering new homes is a Council priority.
The Council is constructing new affordable Council Homes and also working with Registered Providers (sometimes known as Housing Associations) to provide new affordable housing across the District.
Housing will not be built for profit; it will be to meet the needs of Winchester people who cannot afford a home of their own
