With a background in traditional property development, float8 recognises the chronic shortage of affordable housing across many towns and cities in the UK, often as a result of a shortage of commercially viable land to develop on. Particularly when registered partners and local authorities are competing with private developers with much deeper pockets in a highly competitive environment.

float8 encourages any local authority with a shortage of land but an abundance water at the heart of their community, be that a river, marina, harbour, lake, reservoir or flood plain to contact the team for an informal, no obligation chat about how floating homes could be a sustainable alternative to building on land.
