New, affordable homes for local people in Odiham and North Warnborough
During the preparation of Odiham and North Warnborough’s Neighbourhood Plan in 2015 the Parish Council requested for a Housing Needs Survey to be carried out by Action Hampshire. The survey identified 55 households with a local connection to the parish in need of affordable housing locally.
Following this survey, there have been years of research, joint working and planning between Odiham Parish Council, Hastoe Housing Association, Action Hampshire and Hart District Council. This has led to approval of a new development of affordable homes for local people which has started being built on site and will be available for people to move into from Spring/Summer 2022.
The site is providing 9 homes for rent and 3 for shared ownership (part buy, part rent)
4 x 1 bed flats, 3 x 2 bed houses and 2 x 3 bed houses
2 x 2 bed houses and 1 x 3 bed house
To apply for the rented homes on this site you will need to have an active housing register application with Hart District Council. You are able to make an application via Hart’s website and if you have any queries regarding Hart’s Housing Register, please call 01252 774420.
To apply for the shared ownership homes on this site, you will need to register with the shared ownership zone agent, Help to Buy 3 via the Help to Buy website.
More about the site
This site is a Rural Exception Site which means that it only receives planning permission because it is providing affordable homes just for people with a local connection to Odiham and North Warnborough.
The site will provide a small development of new homes for rent and shared ownership, and all properties will have access to private garden space for occupants. The mix of property sizes provided meets the needs of local people as identified in the housing needs survey and will provide affordable options for people to remain living in the Odiham and North Warnborough area, either by renting a home or taking a step onto the property ladder through shared ownership.
Hastoe aims to develop homes using a fabric first approach which means that they develop homes where the actual building is more energy efficient than most homes even before heating and other systems which are used within the home are considered. This can help reduce overall costs, improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions, and reduce fuel bills for residents.
