First Homes scheme

The First Homes scheme is designed to help local first-time buyers to buy a discounted home.

What is the First Homes scheme?

The First Homes scheme aims to help local people, particularly key workers like NHS staff and veterans, to buy their first home at a discount of at least 30% compared to the market price.

That percentage discount will be passed on with the sale of the property to any future first-time buyers, which means that the homes will always be sold below market value, benefiting local communities for years to come.
