Coastline Housing is an independent Cornish charitable housing association owning and managing 5,000 homes.
The housing crisis means the challenge we face is enormous. Only one in ten of homes in Cornwall is an affordable home. Private rents and house prices are unaffordable to most, trapping families in poverty.
Coastline exists to help solve this crisis. To provide housing for those in need, to help improve the neighbourhoods that people live in, and to provide services that improve the quality of our customers’ lives.
In 2021 Coastline was named the eighth fastest growing association in terms of building new affordable properties. This is the fourth year in a row that Coastline appeared in the top 10 fastest growing housing associations list published by Inside Housing. Across the last 12 months we invested £34.5 million, including almost £3 million of grant from local and central government, in developing homes for Cornwall.
We have committed, with our partners, to building no less than 1,200 new affordable homes between 2021 and 2025 to help families and individuals struggling with housing.
