Affordable Homes For Local People

Updated: Mar 17

Greens call for dorset council to do more - back in July 2022 we had over 10,000 residents needing housing, Dorset Council could dramatically improve the availability of genuinely “affordable” housing for rent by looking to converting empty buildings or building on land that they already own.

A housing corporation WAS put in place by West Dorset District Council to look at the possibility of partnering with a housing association to build ' affordable housing' but unfortunately no actions since….ll.l

Greens are calling for Dorset Council to be more pro-active on providing genuinely affordable housing.

Local Green Party campaigner Jacqui Sewell, says: “I want to see Dorset Council using its own council land, build new council houses for social rent, and buy up and convert suitable existing housing. This would complement the work done by Community Land Trusts.”

The Broadwindsor Group Parish Community Land Trust has recently completed a project to provide fifteen new high quality affordable homes at Northcombe Lea in Drimpton.
