Countryside begins £25m Scarborough project
Work has started on the delivery of 126 affordable dwellings for housing association Karbon Homes.
Countryside Partnerships is now on site off Ogodsby Lane in Cayton, Scarborough on the scheme.
All of the homes will be managed by 54North Homes, a subsidiary of the Karbon Group. Forty two will be made available for shared ownership, with the remaining 84 available for affordable rent.
In addition to detached, semi-detached, and terraced properties, bungalows will also be available, with the homes ranging between two and four bedrooms. The scheme will be bordered by open green space with a network of footpaths and a play area.
Andrew Poyner, managing director of Countryside Partnerships Yorkshire, said: “We are always looking to deliver quality new homes in partnership with housing providers like Karbon Homes. This 100% affordable housing scheme is located in an area where demand for affordable housing is substantial and it will make a real difference to the local community.”
Zoey Hawthorne, assistant director of development delivery at Karbon Homes, said: “We have worked with Countryside on other affordable housing schemes in Yorkshire over the last year and have a great working relationship with the team.
“The development offers a mix of homes which will support residents at varying stages of life. As well as homes for affordable rent, the development will also support the next generation of homeowners to achieve their first step on the property ladder.”
The Karbon project is supported by funding from Homes England, through Karbon’s strategic partnership with the government’s housing delivery agency.
The strategic partnership has provided the housing association with £131.5m in funding to deliver 2,200 affordable homes across the North East and Yorkshire over the next few years.
