Horsham District Homes
Horsham District Homes is an affordable housing company owned by Horsham District Council. Its objectives are:
- giving a boost to the existing delivery of affordable housing in the District
- making the best use of section 106 sums, and;
- providing a financial return to the Council for further reinvestment in housing and in District facilities
Following a model seen in other councils, Horsham District Homes as a company, is separate from the Council but wholly owned by it. It is led by Council appointed directors but other staff resources – such as legal, financial and administrative support – come from within the Council.
What will the company be delivering?
The company is committed to delivering affordable rented homes to households on the Council's housing register. Rents will be capped at local housing allowance rates (LHA).
