Affordable Housing Services

At CJH Land we are aware that the provision of Affordable Housing plays a significant role in achieving maximum value for development land.

Affordable housing is now a common requirement for the majority of developments over a certain number of units. It varies from Council to Council but it can be applicable on developments of as little as 2 units. The delivery of affordable housing is a key component where we have, for a number of years, demonstrated the necessary skills to maximise the value for our retained clients.

We have a strong working relationship with the Homes & Communities Agency, the majority of Local Authorities and Registered Providers/Housing Associations operating in the South West. These relationships are vital in understanding how this sector of the development industry works.

We are currently retained by a number of national house builders in advising them on the delivery of their affordable housing obligations and the procurement of the best value for this aspect of their developments..
