What is the Council doing to help?

We are delivering affordable housing in Test Valley by:

  • Having a 3 year Housing Strategy. ‘Helping local people access a decent home’, which sets out how we will deliver affordable housing in the Borough;
  • Using our planning policies to make sure that private housing developments have a percentage of new homes for sale or rent to local people at affordable prices;
  • Working with housing associations to increase the number of new homes for rent and for sale;
  • Making it easier for people to apply for affordable housing;
  • Sometimes making Council-owned land available for affordable housing.

If you require any further information on the above, please contact:
