Affordable Housing in Craven

The Council works in an enabling capacity with a number of housing providers to increase the supply of affordable housing.

Affordable Housing in Sutton

Craven District Council transferred all of its housing stock to Yorkshire Housing on 31st March 2003 and is no longer a direct provider of affordable housing.

We continue to work closely with Yorkshire Housing and other housing associations and private developers wishing to develop in Craven to maximise opportunities to build and acquire affordable housing to meet the housing needs of our district.

What is Affordable Housing?

This is housing provided at below market costs for local people who are unable to afford market priced accommodation to either rent or buy.  Affordable housing is therefore cheaper than market housing and can be for sale or rent. For further information about the different types of affordable housing available, please go to our housing 'information and advice' web pages.

How do we provide Affordable Housing?

The Council works with housing associations, now known as Registered Providers (RPs) and the Homes and Communities Agency (the Government's funding agency) to identify and fund affordable housing.  We also work with private developers and use the planning process to provide affordable housing as part of larger housing developments. We have also contributed Council owned land to provide additional affordable homes and we are building our own houses too. For further information about new affordable housing developments and opportunities, please go to our ' affordable homes available soon' web page.
