Affordable Homes up for grabs in Copster GreenPublished Tuesday, 03 June 2014
Five new affordable properties are up for grabs at a prestigious development in Copster Green.
The three-bedroom houses at Brown Leaves Grove are available for shared ownership from £57,750.
The properties have been developed by McDermott Homes in association with Ribble Valley Borough Council and affordable homes specialist Help to Buy.
And a showroom launch of the new scheme will take place on 6 and 7 June from 11.00am to 4.00pm.
Colin Hirst, head of housing and regeneration at Ribble Valley Borough Council, said: “The provision of affordable housing is one of the biggest challenges facing the council and we are working closely with our housing partners to address this problem.
“We are delighted to have supported this excellent scheme, which will make much-needed high-quality shared ownership properties available in a Ribble Valley hamlet.”
House prices in Ribble Valley are way above the national average and first-time buyers are being forced out of the communities their families have lived in for generations.
Ribble Valley Borough Council is at the forefront of several housing initiatives, from the provision of affordable properties in partnership with the housing sector to cutting-edge energy efficiency.
