There is a significant shortage of affordable housing in Herts, Beds and Bucks and one of our main aims is to build more homes to meet housing need and demand.  Hightown has over 1,000 homes in build or in the development pipeline. Our new housing comes from two sources:

  • schemes built on land acquired by Hightown
  • schemes built by private house builders where there is a planning requirement for some of the homes to be affordable.
