Vacancies at 10 East Reach - and more on the way

Are you looking for a new home, or do you know someone who is? We have a flat free at 10 East Reach suitable for a single person, and we are looking for someone who is in genuine housing need (which could mean homeless, or unsuitably housed, or unaffordably housed, or insecurely housed) and would like to be part of a housing scheme owned and run jointly by its tenants and the community.
We have an application form that all prospective tenants need to complete - see the links to the right - and if you wish to be considered for the current vacancy we'd advise getting the completed form to us at 10 East Reach, Taunton or landtrust@somerset.coop by Wednesday 18th October.
However, we are - as you may have gathered - in the process of developing a planning application for many more flats to be built in 2018-19, and we would very much like to get names down for the flats well in advance. That's because our architect is very keen to involve prospective tenants in the design process so they can customise their future homes.
So, whether your housing need is immediate and urgent, or whether you are looking to improve your situation in the future, do please take a look at the application form.
