The UK, and particularly Oxfordshire, is in the midst of a housing crisis where people are growing up in areas that they will be unable to afford a home in if the shortage of homes is not addressed through the provision of new homes. This is because the older generation is living longer than ever before, whilst in recent decades there has been a second major post war baby boom.
As a result, it’s easy to see that the dream of having an affordable place of your own to live and work risks being out of reach for a whole generation of local young families – and an older local generation seeking somewhere to downsize within their community are also struggling to find a home to meet their changing needs. Without urgent action to deliver more homes that people can afford, this problem will only get worse and more local people will be priced out of where they grew up.
Harrington will meet these needs, featuring a broad range of house sizes and tenures to cater for every need, including shared-ownership, affordable rent, rent-to-buy as well as homes that prioritise local people including the older generation and self-build opportunities, plus all the facilities people need for day-to-day living and recreation.
