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 home owners making them affordable to heat.
SLH is committed to reducing our Environmental Impact and this development helps us to achieve this goal.
Cath Purdy, Chief Executive of SLH said “We are motivated to alleviate the housing issues that are faced locally and I’m delighted that we are bringing this scheme forward at Boon Town in Burton-in-Kendal.
The new homes will play a key role in helping us to achieve our aim of reducing household bills for residents and providing homes that are affordable to heat for residents.”
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.
Nic Roberts at Elliott Associates said “We have worked closely with the delivery team through the pre contract stages and reviewed each construction element taking into account function and cost. This extensive exercise has ensured that the homes will surpass the expected 2021/22 Part L Building Regulations requirements and therefore be future proofed as we head towards the Future Homes Standard. It is fantastic to be working with South Lakes Housing to deliver affordable homes while taking into account the environmental impact.”
