Now in its sixth year, our unique 18-site programme will see nearly 3,000 new homes for social renting, shared ownership and outright sale built on council land - funded by land receipts, rental income, property sales and responsible borrowing.
Unlike the traditional model of site-specific joint ventures or land disposals, we've created a new, long-term approach to estate regeneration - combining viable schemes with those needing cross subsidy to make them work.
This self-funding programme is one of the UK's biggest, and is already delivering new homes on the ground - replacing ageing, poor-quality council homes with high quality new developments where all existing tenants have the right to return, all existing leaseholders have options to remain, and new residents can take advantage of council rents and innovative shared ownership deals.
The successful Project Officer will:
- have the ability to engage positively with a wide range of stakeholders, including residents, and foster confidence amongst senior managers, internal and external partners
- be well organised and solution orientated
