Cost of Living

With significant rise in the cost of living we know that some households will be struggling financially, emotionally or because they need practical advice and help. Here is some key information on what support is available and how to access it. As new schemes, advice and support becomes available this page will be kept updated.

Buying an affordable home

Information about affordable homes

If you are interested in getting onto the property ladder, there are a number of government home ownership schemes available. Details can be found on the Help to Buy website.

Boston Borough Council is supporting the Early Delivery Programme for First Homes. This is a new government-backed affordable housing scheme which provides new homes at a discount - currently 30% - for First Time buyers with a household income of less than £80,000.  Applications are made direct to the Housing Developer. For information on where First Homes will be available, see the Current Developments page.  More sites will be available from 2023.
