New Build Strategy

The HRA self-financing debt settlement at the end of March 2012 has allowed North Kesteven the opportunity to identify the budget capacity to aspire to deliver 500 new Council homes. The move to self-financing has increased North Kesteven’s ability to invest in new affordable homes.

This ambition for growth places North Kesteven as a public sector leader in delivering social housing. North Kesteven’s organisational experience allows it to unlock public and private land at a level which ensures financial viability for development.

This new build strategy is aligned to the NK Corporate Plan and connected to our HRA Business Plan which sets out a clear vision:
