Yewbarrow Lodge, Grange-over-Sands

New affordable homes are planned to be built to replace Yewbarrow Lodge. After many months of looking at a range of options, including reconfiguring the current building, it is now likely that the previous sheltered scheme will be replaced by new energy efficient homes.

Many Grange residents have been anxious to hear about the plans for the building and or the site, and particularity that the site remains for ‘community benefit’ as bequeathed by the late Col. Porritt. South Lakes Housing has taken into account the heartfelt responses of the community and proposes to create new affordable homes which will predominantly be available for local people.

The detail of the new development is still at an early stage, and we’re keen to involve local people in the proposals as they are drawn up. An architectural company has been appointed, with community consultation events to follow in the coming months.

In the meantime, we are starting to undertake some low-level clearance works to remove items from the existing Yewbarrow Lodge. You will start to see skips being delivered and activity from week commencing the 21st February, lasting for a few weeks.

We thank you for your patience and understanding whilst these works continue. If you wish to discuss the wider project in any more detail, please feel free to get in touch.

We will be posting regular updates here to keep everyone informed.
