Building new homes

We are committed to building new homes. We partner with others to create great places where people choose to live, with the right homes, of the right quality, in the right place. We provide homes that are affordable to rent or to buy to meet the needs of those in our communities, whatever their requirement.

We are working with Rollalong, a local offsite constructor, to provide high quality modular homes. This modern method of construction (MMC) helps eliminate the gap between predicted and actual performance, has environmental benefits and provides a higher quality final product. You can see the range of modular homes here.

We are actively buying land for redevelopment, securing planning consents and working with consultants and contractors to build our new homes.

We are utilising grant funding from Homes England through our involvement with other housing associations in Partnership South West and our strategic partnership with the Curo Group.

We are currently developing our 2020-2030 Development Strategy. With a clear vision around supply and investment into greener, safer, healthier and better homes, Magna commit to delivering the right homes at the right quality and in the right place. The table below shows our current development sites and the homes we have committed to building.

All of our rented properties are allocated through the choice-based lettings schemes in Somerset and Dorset. Our shared ownership properties are available to purchase through us.
