Do you have a local connection to Thornfield Green?

Updated: May 30, 2023

We have a beautiful home available (The Birch) on our Thornfield Green development that must be purchased by a buyer with a local connection to the area.

The Birch is a delightful three-bedroom mid-mews home, measuring approximately 845sq.ft, perfect for family living. This is the last available home to feature a south facing garden at Thornfield Green and is the only house type of its kind on the whole development. Do not miss out with prices starting from only £84,400 on a shared ownership basis.

You might be thinking, 'what does a local connection mean'? Well simply it means that the buyer:

  • Currently lives or has lived within the area of the Council, and has done so for 6 out of the last 12 months, or 3 out of the last 5 years; or

  • has immediate family (parent, sibling, child or adoptive parent) who are currently living in the area of the Council and who has done so for at least 5 years; or

  • has a permanent contract of employment in the administrative area of the Council; or

  • is a member of the armed forces or former service personnel (within 5 years of discharge) or a bereaved spouse or civil partner of the armed forces leaving services family accommodation following the death of their spouse or partner, or a serving or former member of the reserve forces who needs to move because of a serious injury, medical condition or disability sustained as result of such membership; or

  • has other significant connections to the area of the Council such that they should be eligible for affordable housing within the area of the Council.

If you would like to apply for this property, please email: or call, 03330 044 777.

Please note: applicants for this home must be able to demonstrate a local connection. Homes are allocated on a first come first served basis from document sign off and subject to meeting eligibility and affordability criteria. Priority will be given to families with a minimum initial purchase share of 40%
