Building More Affordable Homes

Today, I caught up with Dilip Kavi, Ian Watts, Chris Whelan and Rachael Smart from Paragon Community Housing Group, who provide affordable housing across the borough. We discussed a range of local issues in Elmbridge, including their plans to build more affordable homes, the mix of stock (including rental and part-owned), the recent flooding, handling of neighbour disputes, the potential impact of an interest rate rise, and wider community initiatives they are involved in via their subsidiary Elmbridge Housing Trust.
I was grateful for the thorough briefing, and we visited the ongoing development of new affordable homes at Field Common in Walton, which is helping rejuvenate the local neighbourhood. There is a huge amount of work going on locally, both to provide more affordable homes and strengthen local community spirit. Paragon are playing a key role in both.
