Rural development in Hambleton
Wednesday 1 September 2021
We’re pleased to share that planning permission has been granted on a new £3.4million development in Ingleby Arncliffe, North Yorkshire. With a grant from Homes England, and in partnership with contractor Equans, we are constructing 18 new homes for affordable rent, shared ownership, rent to buy and discounted market sale.
With our area of operation covering many rural communities in North Yorkshire, we are committed to investing in these communities to provide much-needed affordable housing.
Often local people can find themselves priced out of the community they have grown up in, with housing costs driven up by the desire of many to relocate to the countryside for more green space, fresher air and a slower pace of life. The average rural property price has risen by 20.8% in the last five years, 3.3% more than in urban areas, further increasing the demand for affordable housing. The addition of new, affordable homes to these areas encourages local people to stay in their community, which in turn helps to support and sustain vital services within the villages.
The development at Ingleby Arncliffe will take approximately 12 months to complete.
