Affordable housing options are available to you if you can't afford a suitable house to rent or buy on the open market. As Wychavon District Council doesn't own any properties, all of the social housing in the district is provided by Registered Providers.
- Affordable housing is provided by an organisation known as a Registered Provider (RP). A range of property types are offered to meet local needs,
- We can assist you with registered providers stock for social rent with Home Choice Plus.
- We can match you to suitable privately rented accommodation through our Wychmove, social lettings agency service.
- We provide guidance on the purchase of properties through shared ownership and fixed equity
Our departments work together to assess the needs of the district and this informs new affordable housing development. This is achieved by working in partnership with registered providers, developers and Homes England.
Although the housing needs in our district are high, we are committed to building affordable homes each year, where possible.
Housing needs evidence
Housing needs surveys
Wychavon District Council undertakes rural housing needs surveys to examine current and future housing needs. The surveys are completed by households in the selected parishes. Each survey provides data that can be used to inform the planning of new housing developments and demonstrate the need for increased affordable housing.
