Affordable housing developments
Securing the delivery of affordable housing remains one of the strategic priorities for Boston Borough Council.
We achieve this through working in partnership with developers, Registered Providers (Housing Associations) and the Homes and Communities Agency, and through using the planning system to secure affordable housing developer contributions.
In addition the Council has an ongoing affordable housing development programme with Waterloo Housing Group to deliver 120 new affordable homes over four years. This is partially funded by the Council in conjunction with funding from Waterloo Housing Group and the Homes and Communities Agency. Details of the work currently being completed by the partnership with Waterloo Housing Group can be found in Related documents.

The need for affordable housing in the borough is evidenced from Strategic Housing Market Assessments for the area and then further refined by an Affordable Housing Demand Survey of households on the Boston Common Housing Register.
Boston Borough Council's housing and planning services will assist and advise developers and registered providers about affordable housing policy requirements and the type of provision needed within the borough to meet the needs of local households.
New affordable properties for rent will be advertised through the Boston Borough Choice Based Lettings Scheme when they are close to completion. Details of recently completed developments and those in progress can be found below. Alternatively, for affordable home-ownership options including shared ownership (part purchase and part rent), see Useful links for the Help to Buy Midlands website (formerly EM Homebuy).
Any developers or Registered Provider who wish to discuss potential schemes for affordable housing or affordable housing requirement may contact Stuart Horton, Principal Housing Strategy Officer.
