Building new homes
We have been very busy this year developing some great schemes to help us meet our ambitions to deliver more, and better, homes. A revised Development Strategy was recently approved by board, which will enable us to deliver 1,000 homes by 2024. We will continue to develop supported living accommodation, but our focus will be on meeting housing need by building more affordable rent and shared ownership properties
Some of our most recent projects include:
Raikes Road, Skipton
This is our first scheme of social housing properties to rent outside of Lancashire in Yorkshire. Local residents will be moving into four, one bedroom apartments shortly with another six homes to follow.
The apartments are available through the North Yorkshire Home Choice a Choice Based Lettings (CBL) Scheme, www.northyorkshirehomechoice.org.uk.
The Maltings, Penwortham
Four family homes for affordable rent have been created with developer Linden Homes on The Maltings in Penwortham. These properties are now all occupied with new tenants.
Harbour Village, Fleetwood
Five family homes have been purchased for affordable rent for local people at Harbour Village, Fleetwood. All these homes have been let.
The following homes are currently in development:
Edward Gardens, Bamber Bridge
Work started on this 15 new home mixed-tenure development in February with the foundations now completed for five, one bedroom fully accessible bungalows for affordable rent. In addition, our separate house building company, Concert Living will be delivering 10, three bedroom semi-detached houses and two, four bedroom detached houses for open market sale.
Concert Living's role is to build good quality homes for sale, for a profit. The profit will be fed back into the rest of the Group to support our core business, including the building of more social rented homes.
Naze Lane, Freckleton
Work is well under way on the former Naze Lane site in Freckleton. The scheme, a mixture of 12 two and three bedroom houses and bungalows, is due for completion in February next year
