Boon Town - South Lakes Housing

Boon Town

South Lakes Housing are delighted to be developing 28 new affordable homes in the market town of Burton-in-Kendal. Construction is currently underway, and we expect that this development will be completed in 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.

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 (Solar 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 properties will consist of a mix of social rent and shared ownership homes as follows:

Shared Ownership

  • 7 x 3 Bedroom semi-detached houses
  • 2 x 2 Bedroom semi-detached houses
  • 3 x 2 Bedroom bungalows


  • 3 x 2 Bedroom bungalows
  • 7 x 3 Bedroom semi-detached houses
  • 2 x 2 Bedroom semi-detached houses
  • 2 x 2 Bedroom Flats
  • 2 x 1 Bedroom Flats

The rental properties will be advertised via Cumbria Choice once they are ready for letting. You will need to be registered with Cumbria Choice in order to put your interest forward for these properties.

If you are interested in the Shared Ownership properties, please email so that you can be added to our waiting list. More information about the properties, costs, and the application process will be released to interested parties closer to the completion date.

You can also follow our Development Facebook page for updates across all of our developments.



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.
