Affordable homes plans unveiled
Northamptonshire Rural Housing Association (NRHA) is set to potentially bring another 36 affordable homes to villages across Northamptonshire, as it unveils its plans for the year ahead.
Next month, work will be starting on site in Walgrave where 10 new properties are being built on land adjacent to the housing association’s Poachers Close development.
In Yarwell, work is well underway on five new homes for affordable rent and four for shared ownership, with all due to be completed in May.
June should see the start on site at NRHA’s first development in Little Addington. Two homes for affordable rent and four for shared ownership, along with five for open market sale, are planned.
It is also hoped that planning will be approved for a scheme in Brigstock, comprising one property for affordable rent and five for shared ownership. Work is scheduled to start on site in early 2019.
Company Secretary, Craig Felts, commented: “We are continuing to work hard to bring affordable homes to the villages where they are most needed. Affordable properties are vital to the sustainability of Northamptonshire’s rural communities and our small schemes will make a lasting difference to local people.”
