Adderstone seeks full approval in Hambleton

A development of 68 affordable homes at East Cowton has been put forward for reserved matters approval by the developer.

Adderstone Living intends to deliver housing of one- to four-bedroom properties at the North Yorkshire site.

Welcomed as a major boost for local housing stock, the move would see North of England affordable house builder Adderstone Living  deliver a mix of 68 one, two, three and four bedroomed affordable properties on a plot of land at East Cowton, near Hambleton in North Yorkshire.

The eight-acre site is being designed and developed by Adderstone Living for Karbon Homes, which will eventually manage the scheme.

Close to existing residential housing, the project will see 40% of the overall site area retained as open space to retain the existing rural character of the area.

Housing will also feature improved site access with a new road layout together with parking space for 139 vehicles, which include 14 visitor parking bays.

A key element is the focus around a scheme designed to minimise the impact of the new homes on current residential amenities and the outlook of nearby housing, through the creation of buffer zones to the north and east of the site.

If approved by North Yorkshire Council, construction is expected to start in the summer with the first phase complete in 2025.

Adderstone Living is currently working in Yorkshire, County Durham, Wearside and Tyneside, said managing director Stephen McCoy.

“This would be great news for local people keen to get on the housing ladder,” he said. “We’re really excited about this project and very much look forward to bringing this much needed scheme, with its mix of property types and sizes to provide options for residents at varying stages of life, to fruition.

“Indeed, the delivery of social housing has never been more important than at present and with the commercial pressures on the sector, to deliver high quality, added value schemes in places where people want to live and build communities.”

Adderstone Living, which was established in 2019, is targeting sales revenues of £35m in the next 12 months as the affordable housing sector brings forward its plans to tackle the national housing shortage. The firm looks to work with local authorities and housing associations through sourcing land, designing schemes and securing consents.
