New affordable homes in Nassington
Northamptonshire Rural Housing Association (NRHA), and partners Orbit and Snowdon Homes, completed a third phase of affordable homes on Fenn Close in Nassington in 2022.
The small rural scheme, which is strongly supported by the community, provides an additional nine much-needed affordable properties to the village. The affordable homes in the scheme, which were finished in May 2022, were prioritised for local people with a connection to Nassington.
This is the third phase of the community-led affordable housing provided by NRHA on Fenn Close. It builds on the success of eight homes delivered in phase one in 1994, and a further nine homes in phase two in 2006.
The new homes, all identified in a housing needs survey completed back in 2014, are a mix of maisonettes and houses to suit people with different needs. Six of the homes are available for social rent and three for shared ownership sale. A further three homes will be sold by Snowdon Homes on the open market.
The development incorporates the latest in air source heating technology, enabling cost-effective heating, whilst reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
NRHA is grateful to local family, Dave and Anne Fenn, who have provided low-cost land for all three phases of development.
Alan Burns, Chairman of Nassington Parish Council, commented:
“Housing is expensive in these villages, so to ensure Nassington remains a vibrant and vital place, we’re meeting the housing needs of current and future residents.
“As a village and a parish council, we are very proud of the first two phases of the homes at Fenn Close and confident that phase three will prove to be just as popular.”
