Fifty new affordable homes planned
Warwickshire Rural Housing Association (WRHA) has announced plans to develop a potential 50 much needed affordable homes in five Warwickshire villages.
Work is set to start imminently on a new affordable housing development in Great Alne where seven homes for affordable rent and 10 for local market sale are being built in Spernal Lane.
Five homes for affordable rent and four for local market sale are due to be competed at Weston Court in Long Compton in April. A village play area will also be sited on the scheme, which is great news for local children.
By Summer, work will also be starting on site in Claverdon, where one home for affordable rent and two for shared ownership are planned next to the village primary school. This marks WRHA’s first development within the built boundary of Claverdon.
At Wootton Wawen, Warwickshire’s first Passivhaus development is progressing well. WRHA is delighted that the air tests carried out on the first two properties are within the required Passivhaus Standard for ultra-low energy homes.
Plans for new affordable homes in Bearley are also in the pipeline. A public consultation is being carried out in March to gauge local support for a proposed seven affordable homes.
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 Warwickshire’s rural communities and our small schemes will make a lasting difference to local people.”
