As East Riding of Yorkshire Council continues its programme of building affordable housing across the area for residents, the latest phase at Leconfield is nearing completion.
The council- owned development in Leconfield consists of the construction of two x three- bedroom and two x two- bedroom new semi-detached houses which have been designed by the council’s architects to complement the neighbouring infrastructure in the village.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council, said:”Since 2010, this council has built well over 350 new homes for our residents in a wide range of developments across the East Riding.
“The need for affordable housing remains high throughout our area. The council has secured additional grant funding from the Homes and Communities Agency to support this construction of yet another phase of affordable housing within the region, and I am delighted to see these latest excellent properties at Leconfield.”
The building fabric materials, including triple glazing and extensive insulation, have been specified to ensure the houses are energy efficient. In addition, compost bins and water butts have been provided to help encourage residents’ environmentally friendly lifestyles.
One of the council’s local YorBuild contractors, Voase Builders Limited, have carried out the construction of the properties and are working closely with the council’s project management team to progress the development. Work started on site in summer, 2014 and is due to complete in early March 2015. The properties will be occupied by council tenants very shortly.
