The Ocean team will be in Mevagissey this month to talk about local shared ownership and affordable rent opportunities.
If so – and you come from Mevagissey – this event could be perfect for you. Our affordable housing team will be hosting the drop-in event to explain how local residents can find out more about new affordable housing planned for the town.
Ocean Housing has previously developed two schemes in Mevagissey. Now a planning application for a third has just been submitted. Comprising of 26 new homes, the plans detail 18 affordable rent and eight shared ownership properties.
“The average house price in Mevagissey is more than £275,000*, pricing many locals out of the area.”
“We are keen that all sales and rental lettings go to local people from Mevagissey, who have a strong connection with the parish,” said Louise Pyle, head of commissioning at Ocean Housing.
“The average house price in the village is more than £275,000*, pricing many locals out of the area.
“The aim of this event is to raise awareness that local people may qualify for an affordable rented home, through the housing register or for a shared ownership home, even if they think they may not.”
The event will take place on Monday September 16, between 3pm – 7pm, at the Jubilee Hall on Chapel Street, Mevagissey (PL26 6SS).
This free-to-attend event requires no booking, you can simply drop-in when it most suits you. Those in attendance will also have free entry to a prize draw. The draw will see someone win a £50 shopping voucher.
We will have a number of specialists on hand to explain how shared ownership and affordable rented housing schemes work. The qualifying criteria to apply will also be outlined.
