How long before the homes are built?

There are many stages in developing an affordable housing scheme.

Rural housing schemes are traditionally difficult to develop, but each site is different so a number of factors can influence the timeframe - including the number of plots available, how much work is required on the roads, whether the planners are in favour of the site, the funding and how much opposition there is to the site in the parish.

One of our aims is to try to make this process more efficient through best practice, and thus speed up the delivery of the affordable homes.
