Property purchases

The Housing Development Team begins its property purchase scheme, which aims to increase the availability of affordable housing for social rent in Powys.

This scheme is especially important to increase affordable housing provision in areas of Powys where phosphate levels in the rivers currently affect our ability to develop new-build council homes for social rent.
