Raglan Housing has announced plans for 51 new homes within its Affordable Homes Programme (AHP) after receiving almost £1m in additional funding from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
The new homes will be a mix of general rented and affordable ownership properties.
The housing association has already received funding to build 552 homes by 2015 under the AHP programme.
Richard Stevenson, Raglan’s Business Development Director, said: “This is in effect, a ‘reward’ to Raglan for our good progress with the AHP programme and underlines our ability to out-perform others in the sector.
“It’s a fantastic boost to our aim of becoming of the UK’s leading social housing providers. These will all be modern, high quality homes in areas where there is an identified need and buoyant market.”
Raglan owns and manages over 12,000 homes across the South East, South West, Midlands and East of England.
