Through our Corporate Strategy, Brentwood 2025, we have committed to a £60 million programme over seven years to deliver the next generation of modern council homes. These homes will make best use of existing, underused land in the Borough, such as garage sites, and will be built to the latest low energy standard.
Our strategy also commits us to deliver housing to meet local needs, with an appropriate mix of sizes and tenure. Some will be for affordable rent and some for shared ownership. With the average house price in Brentwood being £452,606, providing affordable housing for our residents is the key challenge to overcome.
This page will be regularly updated with details of new council housing that’s in development and our plans for future homes.
