What are Housing Associations?
Housing Associations are independent social landlords who supply affordable housing in addition to housing provided by us.
They provide accommodation for single people, couples and families. Some Housing Associations specialise in providing supported housing for specific groups of people such as single people, the elderly or people with special needs.
We work closely with several Housing Associations to develop affordable housing for rent and other affordable tenures like shared ownership and intermediate rent.
We have nomination rights to many of the properties for rent in Stevenage that are managed by Housing Associations. When new properties are built or when they are empty, eligible applicants on the housing register can bid under the Choice Based Lettings scheme.
