The ‘Right to Buy’ legislation does give most tenants of ‘social’ housing the right to buy their rented homes after a given amount of time.
However, the CLT houses fall outside of this legislation because
- the land belongs to ECLT in perpetuity, and
- this complies with Stroud Local Plan policy HC4 (Exception Sites) which states that the affordable homes on exception sites must always be affordable.
- the Section 106 will include specific clauses to ensure these 23 homes will be for rent only.
