Boon Town - South Lakes Housing

Boon Town

South Lakes Housing (SLH) are delighted that plans to build 28 new homes in the market town of Burton-in-Kendal have been approved by planners at South Lakeland District Council.

All of the homes are 100% affordable and there will be a mix of 19 for affordable rent and 9 for shared ownership.

The homes will all have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of A, as they have been with improved fabric insulation combined with low carbon technology (PV Panels and Battery Storage). This will reduce the carbon footprint of the homes and also reduce the running costs for tenants and homeowners making them affordable to heat.

The 28 affordable properties will consist of:

  • 6× 2 Bed Bungalows
  • 4× 1 & 2 Bed Apartments
  • 4× 2 Bed Houses
  • 14× 3 Bed Houses

All properties include off road parking*

Construction of the project is now underway with the aim to deliver the homes by Summer 2022.

The project has been funded by SLH and Homes England and we are working in partnership to deliver these new homes with Elliott Associates, SLDC, Tyson Construction, IDPartnerships, Wardhadaway and R G Parkins.

Site layout


The site is located on the eastern edge of Burton-in-Kendal, an attractive village in the south of Cumbria close to the Lancashire border.

The village sits on the historically important Great North-Western Road from London to Carlisle, and is shown as a place name and probable stopping point on Ogilby’s 1675 survey of the fifty-eight principal roads in England. The historic core of the village makes up the ‘Burton-in-Kendal Conservation Area’ in the South Lakeland District.
