Affordable Housing: Staffordshire

Volume 504: debated on Monday 18 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many people are classed as key workers eligible for assistance with housing costs in Staffordshire. (310469)

We do not hold data on how many people are classed as key workers and eligible for assistance with housing costs in Staffordshire.

Data on the number of key workers in Staffordshire will be held by the relevant employers of key workers. A full list of eligible key worker roles for the homebuy scheme can be found in the Capital Funding Guide on the Homes and Communities Agency's website at;

The homebuy scheme enables first time buyers with a household income of less than £60,000, who cannot afford to purchase without assistance, to buy a share of a home and get a first step on the housing ladder. Key workers are a priority group for this scheme.
