Our ambition is to build communities where everyone has a home. The housing problems we face across the city demand a range of measures to solve them so that everyone, regardless of income, has a safe and secure place to live.
We strive to provide 35% of all new build developments as social housing. This is our first priority and will continue to be while our city has a waiting list of over 7000 people. We are firmly committed to providing homes for rent that people can afford, and we will retain the current system of setting council rent.
We are dedicated to finding new and innovative solutions to Exeter’s housing needs and we will introduce a cooperative and mutual model of home ownership, where people are given stability and equity while retaining housing stocks.
