Information and Invitation

A new development of affordable homes will shortly be available to rent in Pebmarsh and this is to tell you how you can rent one and invite you to an openevent to view the new properties.

The affordable housing scheme at Water Lane has been developed by Suffolk  Housing Society in partnership with Pebmarsh Parish Council and Braintree District Council for people with a local connection who have a housing need. There are ten properties which are a mix of flats, houses and bungalows, ranging in size from two to four bedrooms and will be available to rent for between £305 and £368 per calendar month.

 See below for details of what you need to do now if youwish to be considered for one of these properties.

 The properties will be allocated by Suffolk Housing Society through the Gateway to Homechoice choice based lettings system. In order for to you to be considered you must first be registered on the scheme and show you have a housing need.   Contact Braintree District Council on 01376 552525 now to register. 

When allocating the properties priority will be given to those people with a local connection who have a residential, work or close family connection to the village of Pebmarsh. If necessary the selection criteria will also allow us to consider people from neighbouring parishes of:

Alphamstone     Bures Hamlet      White Colne     Colne Engaine    Greenstead Green          Halstead Rural     Little Maplestead          Great Maplestead Gestingthorpe     Wickham St Paul   Twinstead       Lamarsh    Great Henny

 We will be holding an Open Event at the scheme on: 

Monday 24th August 2009 between 3pm and 7pm 

to which you are invited. There will be representatives available from Suffolk Housing Society, Braintree District Council, Pebmarsh Parish Council and Iceni Homes to show you around and answer any questions you may have about the development. 

We will advertise the properties so you will be able to register your bid for a property type on the Gateway to Homechoice system from 25 Aug ,  but only if you have previously registered with the scheme.

If you are a single person, this does not exclude you from bidding for a property type, especially if you have a local connection and housing need. 

We will be looking to start tenancies from week beginning 7thSeptember 2009. 

We have made arrangements with the contractor for them to allow access on this day, please do not try to gain access to the scheme at any other time.
