Stevenage Borough Council has an ambitious house building target, to deliver more social and affordable Council rented homes.

To date, 286 homes have been delivered through the development of mixed tenure schemes.

At present, we are on track to meet our target of 500 homes by 2025, having completed a number of schemes since the inception of a dedicated Housing Development team and Executive Sub Committee for Housing Development in 2015.

To continue our delivery of new homes, we are on site in a number of locations across the town.

Below is a summary of each site, for more up-to-date progress at each site you can simply click on the scheme you wish to learn more about.
