Important news has just broken from the Lyvennet Community Trust in regard to their development of affordable homes in Crosby Ravensworth, one of the prettiest parishes in the Eden Valley with an active friendly community, within easy walking distance of a good school, Anglican Church, Methodist Chapel and cozy pub, also within easy access of both the M6 and A66.
The first point of note is that the LCT is now pre-qualifed as an investment partner with the National Affordable Housing Programme. I understand that this is an important step in securing grant funding and from here on in, the project is expected to advance rapidly. For more information on this please click here.
The second item of news, of more direct interest to those readers who are looking for affordable homes at the moment or in the near future is that the LCT are now inviting formal notification of interest in the project. In plainspeak, this means that if you are interested in getting one of these affordable homes then you should apply now. The architect is currently working on the outline layout for the site, which includes:
- 8 self build plots
- 9 affordable rented
- 3 shared ownership
Opportunities like this are very rare. Please click here to view the LCT’s announcement and for access to the registration of interest form.
