Ettington Park Housing Project
We have been provided with with some information regarding affordable housing at the new Ettington Park housing project.
Stratford District Council has confirmed that 40% of the properties have been designated as Affordable Housing, with properties being built by Charles Church in a phased construction from now until 2017.
The properties will be available first to those who satisfy the local connection criteria, e.g.– born in the Parish of Wellesbourne, a current resident in the Parish of Wellesbourne, currently working in the Parish of Wellesbourne, a previous resident in the Parish of Wellesbourne or have immediate family members living in the Parish of Wellesbourne.
People currently living in another Housing Association property in Wellesbourne can also apply to move to Ettington Park in the same way. A similar criteria will then be applied to people with local connections to adjacent parishes if the Wellesbourne connection is not fulfilled.
The advice from Stratford District Council Housing Department is to register as soon as possible in the first instance with Home Choice Plus – www.homechoiceplus.org.uk and then once people have registered they are in a position to bid for the properties as they become available on the Home Choice Plus website – they will need to check this on a regular basis each week.
There are properties being built which will be suitable for singles, couples and those with children.
