New figures released today from Homes England show an increase in the building of affordable homes in Milton Keynes.
The number of affordable homes under construction in 2018/19 was higher than both 2017/18 and 2016/17.
From 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019 there were 531 affordable homes being built in MK - 253 affordable home ownership, 229 affordable rent and 49 social rent.
This is up from 235 and 302 in the previous years respectively.
The increase in affordable homes is good news for the people of MK, however I have always campaigned for infrastructure before expansion and to protect our vital rural areas and will continue to do so in the future.
