Social landlord Coastline Housing is set to deliver 326 'affordable' homes across Cornwall after being awarded £10 million in grant funding by the Homes and Communities Agency.

Coastline says it will use the cash to bring 326 new homes to the county between 2015 and 2018.

And the funding award represents a new record for the 4,000-home landlord, being 250% higher than any previous funding bid it has secured.

Coastline's chief executive, Ann Cornelius, said: "This is fantastic news not just for Coastline, but for local individuals and families who are in desperate need of an affordable home in the county they know and love.

"As we all know, high house prices in Cornwall have excluded many from ever being able to buy their own home, and thousands of people are currently waiting on the register of housing need for rented housing. This latest programme of development will ensure that hundreds more people can be given affordable, high quality, housing in Cornwall."
