New Homes

The need for an affordable, secure, quality home has never been higher. For many people, renting or buying on the open market is out of reach. Eastlight exists to help solve the housing crisis by building new homes and shaping sustainable communities where people want to live.

    Where are our homes?

    We provide 12,500 homes in nine local authority areas and plan to build a further 3,800 new properties by 2026. These will be a mix affordable rent and low-cost home ownership.

    In doing so, we will expand beyond our core area of Essex and Suffolk, building homes across the East of England.

    Good, well-designed homes and places are key to our development plans. We are committed to tackling climate change by building sustainable homes that meet future design standards and keep energy costs low for our residents.

    Our partners

    To achieve our goals, we work with partners who share our vision. These include developers, contractors, local authorities, communities and Homes England.

    Together we build new affordable homes on already planned development sites, or on land we have bought or by regenerating homes that won't meet future housing standards.

    We embrace new opportunities. If you share our vision, have land for sale or are a developer interested in working with us, please get in touch.

We are proud to already being working with a range of valued partners, including:

What if there is a problem with my new Eastlight home?
