Fareham Council is committed to using our own sites to continue to deliver a mix of Affordable Homes across the borough, and this includes both rented and Shared Ownership properties.
Rented housing will be allocated to households on the Council's housing register.
To register your interest in Shared Ownership Housing, we would also encourage you join our Affordable Home Ownership Register using the link below. This will enable us to contact you with details about available properties as well as helping us to better understand the need for Shared Ownership properties in Fareham.

Details regarding Fareham Council's Affordable Housing delivery and emerging projects can be found below:
Oak Tree Close, Bridge Road, Sarisbury Green
Fareham Housing delivered 5 family homes on this site in July 2020.
The homes were split between 3 x two bedroom houses which were let at Affordable Rent level and 2 x three bedroom houses which were let at Social Rent level.
The Council were focussed on including measures to make the homes energy efficient for the occupants and lower their utility costs. As a result of this, the installation of solar panels on each property was included as part of the build project.
Rose Court, 2 Fareham Park Road, Fareham
Fareham Housing secured planning permission in 2018 to deliver a scheme of 10x one bedroom flats and 8x two bedroom flats on this site. The flats were delivered in 2 phases with the first being completed in February 2021 and the second in July 2021.
A successful grant funding bid to Homes England for over £1.2M enabled all the homes to be made available at Social Rent levels and all the homes are now occupied by households from the Council's housing register.
Capella Close, Stubbington Lane, Hill Head
Fareham Housing delivered 11 new affordable homes in March 2023.
All the homes were made available as shared ownership and were split as 2x one bedroom houses, 7x two bedroom houses and 2x three bedroom houses.
Located near to the seafront, the homes proved extremely popular and following the marketing period all the homes were reserved within a very short space of time.
The installation of solar panels on each home has made the homes more energy efficient and will help to lower the utility costs for the new owners.
Station Road, Portchester (Sir Randal Cremer House)
Fareham Housing has secured full planning consent to build 16 x age restricted sheltered housing apartments on this site.
The sheltered housing apartments will be divided between 12 x one bedroom and 4 x two bedrooms.
Works started on site during December 2021 and it is expected that it will take between 12 and 18 months to fully complete the site. Many of the flats are likely to be initially occupied by tenants for the nearby Assheton Court which is due to be redeveloped.
Queens Road, Fareham
Fareham Housing have secured planning permission to redevelop this site by delivering 2 x three bedroom homes which are to be made available for social rent.
Work on the site started in June 2022 and the homes are expected to be completed during Spring 2023.
The homes will be designed to reflect the character of the area, with accessibility features such as wheelchair access. The new residents will benefit from energy efficient homes, equipped with PV panels and air source heat pumps providing heating and hot water, contributing to the Council's commitment for carbon neutrality and deliver on the Housing Department's Greener Policy (2019).
Former Scout Hut, Montefiore Drive, Sarisbury Green (Ophelia Court)
Fareham Housing have secured planning permission to deliver 5x one bedroom flats and 4x two bedroom flats on this site.
The homes will all be made available for Shared Ownership.
Work on the site is due to commence in 2023 and it is expected that it will take between twelve and eighteen months for the homes to be fully built.
Assheton Court, Portchester
In January 2023, Fareham Housing secured planning permission for the redevelopment of Assheton Court in Portchester.
The redevelopment will mean that the existing 33 bed sheltered housing scheme will be demolished and replaced with a new purpose built 60 bed affordable housing development for the over 55s.
Work is underway on the technical design of the build and it is hoped that works will commence at some point in 2023.
As well as providing much needed affordable housing specifically for older persons, it is intended that the new development will deliver high levels of energy efficiency to help mitigate the climate emergency and impact of soaring fuel prices.
