City of York Council

Affordable housing

Affordable housing covers a range of different tenures and options for people who can't afford to access market housing. Housing should be at a price low enough for people to afford in relation to their income and the local house prices.

The different types of affordable housing can be split into two types:

  • homes for rent
  • low cost home ownership

We work with a number of partners to maximise the provision of quality, sustainable, affordable housing in the city.  We work to meet the housing needs of a wide range of people from general needs housing to specialist supported housing.

In addition to supporting the work of our partners, we have recently started to build new council housing.

In the last 7 years there have been 964 new affordable homes completed in York.
