New affordable homes in Lilbourne

lilbourne header

Northamptonshire Rural Housing Association, and partners Grand Union and Whiterock Homes, have recently completed a new affordable home development in the village of Lilbourne.

The small rural scheme provides nine homes for the village, including five much-needed affordable properties. The affordable homes in the scheme, which completed in September 2022, were all allocated to local people with a connection to Lilbourne.

Spacious and low-carbon homes

The homes were built to national space standards and will incorporate the latest in air source heating technology.

The air source heat pumps are eco-friendly, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, and also provide lower cost heating, compared to traditional electric heating systems found in many off-gas rural homes. This will help to keep energy bills low for residents, which in times of significant energy cost increases, is more important than ever to help challenge fuel poverty.
