Detail

Protected areas are those locations where shared ownership houses would be hard to replace if the shared owner subsequently purchased 100% shares and sold the property on the open market.

In accordance with section 302 of the Housing and Regeneration Act 2008, we are publishing the criteria which the Secretary of State will take into account in deciding which areas to designate as protected. Applying protected areas status will ensure that properties are retained for future shared owners.
