Karbon completes Thirsk homes
Backed by Homes England, the housing association has worked with contractor T Manners to deliver the first tranche of housing at Saxty Way.
The 47-home development is one of two in the Hambleton area supported by its strategic relationship with the national housing body.
A scheme off Back Lane in Sowerby, bringing 64 affordable homes to the area is now under way.

The 32,000-home housing association said the projects are designed to meet the needs of the local community with a mix of property types and sizes which provide options for residents at varying stages of life.
Sarah Robson, director of development and regeneration at Karbon Homes, said: “The growth of our development programme in Yorkshire is key in addressing the county’s housing affordability issues and ensuring local people have access to good quality housing, either for rent or for affordable home ownership.
“The development at Saxty Way was designed with the needs of the local community in mind, providing a mix of bungalows, flats and family homes, options for a whole range of customers and properly integrated into local surroundings.”
The homes include air source heat pumps and solar PV panels.
Ben McLoughlin, senior manager in strategic partnerships for Homes England, said: “The energy efficient new homes on Saxty Way integrate well with the existing community. Due to funding certainty provided by their Strategic Partnership with Homes England, Karbon Homes has been able to bring forward much needed affordable housing in Thirsk and Sowerby.”
The 111 Hambleton homes are part of Karbon’s wider new homes programme in the region, which outlines ambitions to develop over 700 affordable homes across Yorkshire by March 2028.
All new homes developed by Karbon in Yorkshire will be managed by subsidiary 54North Homes, which manages 3,000 homes across the region.
