£5m Help Onto Housing Ladder

A £5 million affordable homes scheme will be marketed to NHS staff, carers and teachers who struggle to get on the housing ladder in York. Councillors have approved money to launch a new shared ownership homes programme, which will see people getting council help to buy 65 homes in York. The homes - probably made up of 40 new-build homes, and 25 “second hand” homes bought on the open market - will be targeted at valuable key workers in areas like the NHS, children’s workers and social care, and schools - who currently struggle with York’s high housing costs. The first people could be buying their new homes by the end of the year. Read more on the York Press.
