Our Development Programme

Over the next four years, Red Kite will provide at least 375 new homes in the Wycombe District, with an aspiration to deliver up to 500.

You may have already seen some of our plans covered in the local press or indeed through letters we have sent out, which means that our plans are now well underway!

We know that locally, there is a demand for housing that people can afford, so our development programme has been designed to provide exactly that, and by doing so, it will help address housing for all members of the community.

To do so, we are going to build a range of different homes so that the proceeds can go towards building affordable housing which is expensive to build. With a large number of planning applications already submitted, we are now waiting for approval on these so we can get to work. While our focus is to provide rented homes at less than 80% of market rent, we need to subsidise the construction of those homes, so local people will likely see that market rent and outright sales will be the first to be approved.

We’ve done this so that a surplus can be generated to pay for the deficit that is incurred when building social rented homes, which require a subsidy of up to £86,000 per home. The level of cross-subsidy that we get from other tenures, like outright sale and market rent, means that because they deliver a return on investment over time, they generate the financial resources we need to build social homes.

Here is our plan for new homes across the district:
