Marlborough Sustainable Housing Trust

The Marlborough Sustainable Housing Trust aims to provide affordable housing to Marlborough households through Shared Ownership. Our houses are energy efficient and accessible – designed for working households on moderate incomes in Marlborough. We are looking for households on moderate incomes interested in becoming home owners.

The trust also provides rental housing to low-income families. In November 2014, the Trust achieved registration as a community housing provider Class 1 – Social Landlord, under the Housing Restructuring and Tenancy Matters (Community Housing Provider) Regulations 2014. Registration demonstrates that the Trust has the capacity to meet the performance standards established by the Community Housing Regulatory Authority to ensure that tenants are appropriately housed. Our trust is the only registered community housing provider operating in Marlborough.
