Eighteen new affordable properties are up for grabs at a picturesque development in Longridge.

The two and three-bedroom bungalows and houses at Romans Crossing in Preston Road are available for rent or shared ownership. 

The properties have been developed by Miller Homes in association with Ribble Valley Borough Council and Adactus Housing.

The development comprises four two-bedroom houses and six two-bedroom bungalows for rent and two, two-bedroom houses and six three-bedroom houses for shared ownership.

The scheme will be launched at a registration event at the Old Station Buildings in Berry Lane, Longridge, from 3.00pm to 6.00pm on Wednesday 16 July.

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 rental and shared ownership properties available in Longridge.”

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.

Further details of the Longridge properties are available from Adactus Housing on 0845 505 3355.
