DEVELOPMENT OF THE LANES, HAWKSHEAD PLACE, NEWTON AYCLIFFE pdf icon PDF 384 K

Report of Director of Neighbourhood Services.

Minutes:

Consideration was given to a report regarding a request from Tees Valley Housing Group for 38 properties within ‘The Lanes’ development, Hawkeshead Place, Newton Aycliffe to be utilised through low cost home ownership and intermediate rent in view of the current housing market conditions.  (For copy see file of Minutes). 

 

Members noted that low cost home ownership and intermediate rent schemes had the support of the Housing Corporation and had been introduced to assist households who were unable to afford access to home ownership in view of the current housing market conditions.  The intermediate rent, which was set at 80% of the market rent ,enabled potential home owners to save for a deposit or to allow their financial circumstances to improve sufficiently to help them access home ownership.

 

RESOLVED :         1.   That the request from Tees Valley Housing Group to provide 38 properties, through low cost home ownership and intermediate rent, subject to Housing Corporation funding, be approved.

 

2.      That applicants who fulfil the criteria be nominated from Council’s housing register.

 

3.      That the Council in partnership with Tees Valley Housing Group continues to actively market the development.
