Rural focus

Sustainable homes in sustainable communities

Hastoe has specialised in supporting rural communities for nearly 30 years and we are the leading national rural housing association. Our commitment to providing quality housing in the countryside is not about just growing Hastoe, but working with and for rural communities.

As founder members of the Rural Housing Alliance, we are committed to working closely with local communities, including parish and district councils, to deliver the high quality homes and services that those communities need and want.

We abide by the Rural Housing Alliance pledge to:

  • Work closely with the local community and Parish Council to find the right site
  • Always give qualifying local people in housing need first priority for every home
  • Ensure that affordable homes always remain affordable
  • Build sensitively designed, high quality homes to high environmental standards
  • Provide good quality and locally sensitive management services to our residents
  • Always respond positively to the local community
