Beyond Housing has exchanged contracts with construction contractor Linden Homes to develop 36 affordable new homes in the village of Seamer, near Scarborough.
The affordable housing provision, which will be completed in two phases, has been negotiated within the contractor’s Section 106 planning agreement for a 241-home development.
The first phase will provide nine two-bedroom homes, which will be made available for affordable rent, along with five two and three-bedroom properties, which will be marketed for sale through shared ownership. This phase of the project is targeted for completion between December 2021 and June 2022.
The second phase will provide a further 22 two-and three-bedroom homes, 16 of which will be available for affordable rent and six for shared ownership purchase. This phase is targeted for completion between June 2024 and December 2024.
Karen Howard, Development Manager at Beyond Housing, said: “I’m very pleased to see this exciting development project get under way. These 36 new homes will not only increase the supply of affordable homes to rent in the Scarborough area, but will also support a new generation of homeowners to achieve their first step on the property ladder, with shared ownership homes available in the village for the first time.”
