We hope to be able to provide some affordable housing on land owned by the community hall. This will be 4 single units at a low rent. The parish survey, organised by the Parish Council, has shown a need.
We now have planning permission, over half the funding from Homes England, and are in the process of becoming a registered provider.
So we need to raise the rest. Donations towards this would be gratefully accepted, but the bulk of the money is likely to be as loans – at as favourable a rate of interest as possible!
If you think you can help with ANY of the following, please contact Brian for a confidential discussion (01237451627). We would like to keep everything local.
Loan or donations Site clearance Legal services Site work Building work Landscaping We already have had a generous offer from A Cann (Cadworks) - the architect in the village.
The housing will be tenancy only (NEVER for sale), for local needs, and ideal for our youngsters who want to stay in the village – assuming they can prove housing need, as per our 106 agreement. With Community help and support, we can deliver something that lots of people have been asking for, and will benefit the community. In the long run, once the loans are repaid, we would expect funds to be available for community benefit. Please get in touch—it can only happen with support!
We have planning permission, we have a S106 agreement, and we have Homes England funding.
We have also started the process of becoming a registered provider.
