Additional Information

Do you qualify for affordable housing?

Do you live in or work in the Lancaster district?

Would you like to buy a new house in order to move on from your parents’ home or set up home with a partner or get a larger house for a growing family?

Are your plans on hold because local house prices are out of your reach?

If these are your circumstances then you may qualify for a discount on a new house through our affordable housing policy.

The rules about who can qualify for a new discounted house may be slightly different on each of the housing sites. However, as a general guide new homes for sale at a discount are aimed at households (a household can be a single person) that:

  • Do not have a large enough income to buy a house that matches their needs at normal market prices, and
  • Have at least one member who lives or has previously lived in the Lancaster district, or
  • Have a member who has recently started, or is about to start work, in the Lancaster district, or
  • Have a member who needs to live in the Lancaster district to act as a carer to an ill or elderly person, or
  • Have a member who has another justifiable reason to live in the Lancaster district
