Letter – 3rd September 2018

The building has started of 14 new dwellings, 6 of which will be Shared Ownership affordable houses at Steele Close.  There will also be 2 flats and 6 houses for rent through Saxon Weald.  Please look out for the Marketing Launch in the next couple of months and tell anyone you know with a close connection to West Chiltington and who may be interested in purchasing or renting one of these properties.

Rural Housing Trust Ltd specialises in rural shared ownership housing – affordable housing for local people.  If you would like to apply for one of these new homes, you can go to their website for information – and our Parish Clerk can also take names of those interested.  These homes are aimed exclusively at people with a local close connection for the first 3 months of marketing.

The restrictions on sale to local people are for a period of 3 months from the date of the marketing launch, planned for September/October. The term ‘Close Connection’ usually means one or more of the following:

  • currently living in the parish (sometimes for a period of years)
  • previous residence in the parish (sometimes for a period of years)
  • close relatives currently live in the parish
  • current permanent employment in the parish
  • about to take up permanent employment in the parish
  • Any of the above criteria for another parish listed in the Planning Agreement, which are normally the adjacent parishes.
