Affordable housing

Affordable Housing is one of the Council’s highest priorities and our success in delivering new affordable homes is recognised nationally, with 7358 affordable homes having been built since 2009 and the second highest national allocation of New Homes Bonus being awarded to Cornwall in 2017. Ensuring that there are enough good quality homes at an affordable level to local people, to rent or buy, is something our highly experienced team are passionate about enabling.
