Building affordable housing
Waveney District Council does not build any housing itself; instead we work with Registered Providers of Social Housing (RPSH) to support their efforts to develop and build new affordable housing (to rent or part buy) in the district.
We recognise that partnership working is an essential part of this enabling role. We have successfully worked with RPSH, Voluntary Organisations, Norfolk County Council, Parish Councils, Private Developers, other Local Authorities and the Homes and Communities Agency in order to prove the need for, plan and deliver all kinds of affordable housing within the district.
One key aspect of this role is to make sure that any new development matches the identified housing need in the district. The Council regularly undertakes housing needs surveys to ensure that we use up to date information to make decisions about new developments. We aim to provide an excellent service for our customers. Our customers include members of the public who may own land, parish councils, public bodies, housing associations, support agencies and developers.
