Developments

We are creating places where people want to live, now and in the future.

More than 31,000 people live in a PCH home - that's around 11 per cent of the population of Plymouth. We're about better homes, more homes and helping communities to thrive.

We do that by building new homes for rent, for shared ownership through SO Living; and outright sale, helping people invest in their own future.

We will build new affordable homes for future generations - to make sure that people have a decent place to live and access to the opportunities they deserve. In this way we’re helping the residents of Plymouth and the wider travel area have a better future.

 

Building new homes

We started building homes in 2011 and since then have delivered 873 new homes for rent and shared ownership. Over the next five years we aim to deliver a further 1,100 new homes for rent, shared ownership and open market sale.

By 2025 we hope to have built around 1,700 new homes for Plymouth and surrounding areas at a cost of over £230m. This figure is continually evolving as the Development Team secure sites in and around the city.

 

Shared ownership through SO Living

Through our SO Living sales team, we have sold 167 shared ownership homes, generating a total first trance sales income of around £12.4m. This money has been reinvested to help build more homes for local residents. 

 

Working with stakeholders

We're a major stakeholder in Plymouth and we speak directly to residents about our proposed developments. We continue to work with organisations such as Homes England and local authorities to get the best results for our residents. We’re part of Homes for the South West, a group of Chief Executives from some of the largest housing associations in the region.
