This week we are celebrating all the benefits that Affordable Housing bring to rural communities across Devon.
Cornerstone has a number of affordable rural housing schemes in East Devon and in Teignbridge. Our schemes include Rented, Rent-To-Buy and Shared Ownership homes in villages. This has enabled local people to remain close to where they have grown up with the added benefit of providing a network of support for families and friends. We know that rural housing schemes also help sustain local shops, businesses as well as village primary schools.
“In a nutshell housing associations are helping to put the heart back into rural communities by replacing some of the affordable homes lost through the Right To Buy” Anne Seaborne, Joint Chair of Devon Rural Housing Delivery Board.
This year Cornerstone completed a further 7 affordable Rent to Buy homes in the village of Woodbury, near Exmouth. This Rentplus scheme is designed to assist tenants buy their home in the future.
Newly completed homes at Meadow View Close , Woodbury.
Cornerstone is a member of the Devon Rural Housing Partnership which is part of Devon Communities Together, a voluntary organisations promoting rural initiative across Devon.
