AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN MARK
Affordable housing is for people who are unable to rent or buy on the open market. This includes rented housing, shared ownership, equity loans and low cost home ownership products.
Mark Parish Council asked Sedgemoor District Council to carry out a "housing needs assessment" to identify the demand for affordable housing in Mark by members of the community with a connection to Mark and who would like to live here. Mark Community Land Trust and Sedgemoor District Council are presently jointly working on a project to deliver the number of affordable housing units identified by the assessment.
See under the Community Land Trust section for latest developments.
AFFORDABLE RENTED HOUSING IN MARK
Affordable rented homes are provided by both Sedgemoor District Council (Homes in Sedgemoor) and Registered Providers (Housing Associations), or in some cases by private landlords who charge rent below that charged on the open market.
These homes are ideal if you do not want, or are unable to, obtain a mortgage.
If you wish to apply for rented housing, you can do so by visiting Homefinder Somerset.
