Housing

Question: Who does the Affordable Housing Scheme apply to?

Answer:

The Affordable Housing Scheme provides for the building for new houses in areas where house prices have created an affordability gap for lower income house purchasers. The houses will be offered for sale to eligible first time purchasers at cost price, and, accordingly, at a significant discount from the market value of comparable houses in the area.
