We provide affordable homes for rent for people in housing need, and workspace and opportunities for community/social enterprises.
Our aim is to provide affordable and sustainable homes for rent in the market towns and other urban areas in Somerset, BANES and North Somerset.
Alongside our homes we want to set up community-led workspaces and facilities that create employment and training opportunities, and support for community enterprises. To benefit both our tenants and the wider community.
We currently manage four affordable homes in Taunton and two commercial units. One of which is a community enterprise hub that has helped set up and develop dozens of co-ops and community enterprises, as well as provide jobs and training for our residents.
We have 33 new units – all affordable rent - in two development sites awaiting planning approval.
The eight new homes in the centre of Taunton will be car-free and have laundry and other communal facilities to help with affordability and creating a community.
In the small town of Wiveliscombe we are planning 25 new 1 and 2 bed homes with a community run activity and workspace for use by our residents and the town’s residents.
