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, the Council is on track to meet its target of 500 homes by 2025, having completed a number of schemes since the inception of a dedicated Housing Development team & Executive Sub Committee for Housing development in 2015.

To continue Stevenage Borough Council’s 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 the site you can simply click on the scheme you wish to learn more about.
