How to apply for affordable housing in Cannington:

As you may know, 22 affordable homes will be delivered this year on the Grange Meadow development in Cannington, managed and owned by Aster. Construction of the attractive new homes on the site continues to progress well. This would mean that anyone wanting an affordable home on this development should be ready to bid ASAP on Homefinder Somerset.

Local people with a housing need, and who have the strongest connection with Cannington, will be given the highest priority for the new homes.

The next steps, if you are interested in one of these affordable homes:

Step 1: You must be registered on the Homefinder Somerset system. You can do this online at Help is available for those who cannot register online by contacting Somerset Council’s Housing team on 0300 123 2224. You are advised to do this as soon as possible, as it can take two months to complete the assessment process. Once registered:

Step 2: You must make sure your information is up to date and crucially, make sure your application confirms what local connection you have with Cannington. This is very important.

Step 3: From Summer 2023 onwards (timing to be confirmed and will be advertised locally), you must regularly login to this system to check when you can bid for one of these homes. The advert will make it clear that priority for the new homes goes to applicants with a connection to the parish of Cannington.

Step 4: You must bid for one of these properties (when advertised) to be considered.
