Brighton & Hove City Council leader Warren Morgan (quoted below) has announced an ambitious JV with Hyde Housing Association intended to deliver one thousand new low cost/affordable homes in the city in the next two years.

What is particularly interesting (apart from the fact that these homes will be rented at no more than 40% of tenants' incomes) is the partnership between a Council using prudential borrowing and a housing association with expertise in delivering both affordable and private homes. One to watch.
