Cornwall Council buys 130 affordable homes

Cornwall Council has completed a landmark multi-million-pound deal to buy 130 homes at West Carclaze Garden Village on the outskirts of St Austell, as part of its work to tackle the housing crisis. 

The deal with developers Eco-Bos is the largest acquisition the authority has made to date for its new ‘council housing’ development programme, which was set up in 2019 following the lifting of borrowing restrictions by the Government. 

Once completed, the homes will be available for social rent and affordable rent to local households in need. 

Shared ownership homes will also be available, helping people to take a first step on the housing ladder.
