High quality new-build homes, for affordable monthly prices

What is Affordable Rental?

Affordable Rentals are a type of social housing introduced by the Government. They are good quality homes, rented at a reduced percentage of the market rent, to make them more affordable for eligible tenants on the Council’s housing register. Affordable Rental homes at Heyford Park will be managed and maintained by Heyford Regeneration.

Am I eligible for an Affordable Rental Home?

To be eligible for Affordable Rental at Heyford Park your household must meet certain income criteria. In this instance your household income must not exceed £60,000 per annum.

Anyone wishing to be considered for an Affordable Rental home at Heyford Park will also need to be registered with Cherwell District Council’s Housing Register.

Allocations Policy
Due to the complex nature of the regeneration project at Heyford Park, Heyford Regeneration and Cherwell District Council have created a Local Lettings Plan that is bespoke to Heyford Park, and that will work alongside the Housing Authority’s Allocations Policy in order to determine priority for the Affordable Rental and Shared Ownership properties that are being built on the site. Please follow the below link to view a copy of our Local Lettings Plan, which contains the details of the Allocations Policy.

Dear Tenant,
We are all living in uncertain times as the full impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic is beginning to be felt around the country. As your landlord we wanted to contact you and let you know that we are working hard to support our community at Heyford Park as much as we can and are also in contact with Cherwell Housing team.

We understand that while most people will continue to get paid by the employers in a few individual circumstances some people may have had their incomes severely impacted. We would therefore ask that anyone who is experiencing the inability to pay rent or utilities due to a significant loss of pay due to the outbreak contacts us as early as possible to discuss their circumstances and we will work with individual tenants and Cherwell to try and fast track any assistance from Cherwell.

It is important that those who are not experiencing a severe change of circumstances as a result of the outbreak continue to pay your rent. This will avoid any enforcement action but will also allow us to focus our resources to people in the community who most need our help at this time of National emergency.
