With property prices increasing, we see affordable homes becoming the “norm”.
Families find it increasingly difficult to secure the necessary deposits in order to buy their own home.
Jessup have over 27 years of experience in delivering affordable homes and are preferred partners of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), the Government Agency responsible for delivering housing.
Some examples of affordable housing solutions:
- Social housing, where rents are capped at a social rent by the local authority
- Affordable rents, where rents are set at up to 80% of market value
- Shared ownership, where purchasers part rent and part buy
- Supported housing, specialist solutions for the more vulnerable in our society
The government’s Affordable Homes Programme has been running since 2011 and is aimed at increasing the supply of new affordable homes.
It provides funding which is managed via the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) to preferred suppliers such as Jessup, who have a proven track record of delivering high quality affordable housing schemes.
The current funding programme runs from 2015 to 2018 and will provide £800m to eligible schemes.
Local Community Centres
All our affordable housing developments are designed to
enhance community life by creating pleasant and practical
places to live. To further improve some of these community
developments we have created local neighbourhood centres
with a mix of houses, apartments and retail facilities to
provide a focal point to create an identifiable heart of the
These local centres interact with existing individual facilities
such as libraries, schools or medical practises to improve
lifestyles for all age groups.
Jessup staff work hard during the construction phase to
engage with local people and explain the benefits of the
scheme. As a consequence, by the time construction is
complete the development has become a welcome addition
to the area.
