Building rural communities

Meeting the rural housing need is a key area of our development at Stonewater, to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to have a place they can call home. We are committed to providing responsbily-built, affordable homes to help meet the current shortage in these areas.

Rural Housing Week 2020

Last year, we marked Rural Housing Week by hosting a webinar with peers from across the sector, to highlight rural issues and discuss the importance of rural housing. Our Special Projects Manager, Charlotte Brace also wrote a blog about her experiences working in rural housing areas to deliver much needed homes.

On the panel there was:

  • Jonathan Layzell: Executive Director of Development, Stonewater
  • Nicholas Harris: Chief Executive, Stonewater
  • Martin Collett: Chief Executive, English Rural Housing
  • Monica Burns: Head of Member Relations, National Housing Federation
  • Sian Griffiths: Director, RCA Generation Ltd
