Delivering affordable, quality housing

Our goals for the future

More good quality, affordable homes are desperately needed here in Cheltenham if we are to be a truly thriving town that meets the needs of all its people. Under Liberal Democrat leadership, the Borough Council has committed itself to providing 500 more affordable homes over the next few years, with an investment available of £180 million.

✓ From April 2021 to date we have provided a total of 61 affordable homes comprised as follows:

    • 27 new homes (22 social rent and 5 x shared ownership) on the site at Monkscroft Villas, now known as Radford Court
    • 7 new homes (5 affordable rent and 2 x shared ownership) via a S106 Agreement with Cotswold Homes, at Brockhampton Lane or Apple Blossom Drive
    • 27 acquisitions using right to buy receipts.

✓ From April 2021 to date we have delivered 13 commercially rented homes at 24 St Georges Place.

✓ In this period we have also secured planning consent for the Borough Council’s first net zero carbon homes.

✓ We have also acquired the site at 320 Swindon Road which will provide 24 new exemplar homes (a mix of rent and shared ownership).

✓ We have a pipeline of circa 350 affordable homes to be provided up to March 2026.
