Homes that are available to rent or buy at less than market prices.
Affordable housing comes in 3 forms:
- Social rent is housing for rent provided by us (the council) or registered social landlords (housing associations) where the rent levels are lower than market rent, in line with Welsh Government's guideline rents and benchmark rent.
- Intermediate rent is housing where the rent is above those of social rented housing but below market housing rents.
- Intermediate sale is housing for people who are able to get a mortgage but cannot afford a suitable property on the open market. Intermediate price housing is for sale at lower than market price.
