Affordable Housing

Affordable housing (within Amber Valley) is housing which can be accessed by households with an income that is on or below the median income of all households within Amber Valley.

In accordance with the Housing Needs Survey (2008) households who fall into this category should not spend over 25% of their income on housing. This is in line with the Government definition of affordable housing that includes both subsidised and non-subsidised housing to meet the local needs of people unable to meet local housing costs.

Based on the Housing Needs Survey, Amber Valley Borough Council has predominantly supported the delivery of social rented accommodation to meet housing need. Different types of Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) have also provided an opportunity for a small number of households to become owner-occupiers who would otherwise be unable to do so.
