Housing associations

Introduction

Telford and Wrekin Council no longer own any housing stock which means the expression "council house" no longer applies in the borough. However, there are still properties available with an affordable rent, these are provided by Housing Associations.

Housing associations are sometimes referred to as Registered providers, they are committed to providing all house types including houses, flats and bungalows.

There are not enough social housing properties in the Telford and Wrekin area to house all those that apply for one but there are other options which you should consider, please follow the Telford HomeFinder page and Private Housing.
