Draft shared ownership acquisition policy

One of the key actions and projects approved by this council in March this year was to start assembling a portfolio of dwellings for shared ownership. Shared ownership is a way to provide a first step in to home ownership for those who cannot afford to purchase a home at the full market value. It allows for a share to be purchased in a property, which is then part-owned by the shared owners and part-leased from the council. It therefore broadens the housing offer to local people.

In preparation for this project, the below draft policy document has been prepared for consideration by a meeting of the full council on 30 January 2019.

As a local taxpayer, your views are appreciated and consequently any comments on the proposal in general and the policy document in particular would be welcomed in advance of the meeting on 30 January 2019.
