2019 the Hornby Road, Caton project is now completed and our new tenants have moved in. This is Carolyn Ryan, one of our Board, welcoming one of them.
2018 saw an additional 3 homes purchased and occupied in Cowan Bridge near Kirby Lonsdale. We are keen to continue to add new communities to our reach and have plans in Craven Lancaster and Wyre areas currently under development. These will expand our total homes by a further 17 units and we expect 10 during 2019 and the remainder early in 2020.
2018 Gardening competition entries, we had two winners and a big thank you for all those that took part. On the day Nick Egdell and Janet Huddart were the judges and had an enjoyable trip around and meeting a number of our Lune Valley tenants.
Lune Valley Rural Housing Association (LVRHA) has just celebrated the handover of three affordable family homes for rent as part of a new housing development at ‘The Sheilings’ Arkholme near Lancaster.
Local people often cannot afford to live in rural villages and towns with demand for available homes driving prices to unaffordable levels.
Lune Valley Rural Housing Association was founded in 1989 and provides good quality affordable homes for rent in the Lune Valley, Craven and Wyre areas and with properties in 14 rural villages are proud to support these communities and the 90 families who live in our homes.
The new homes in Arkholme were built by local award-winning developers Russell Armer Homes Ltd, with Lancashire-based Progress Housing Group acting as developing agents for LVRHA, and have been delivered through a Section 106 agreement with Lancaster City Council.
Mark Charlesworth, previous Chair of LVHRA, said: "We are delighted that these local partnerships have enabled us to support the health and viability of our rural villages by providing three good quality, affordable, homes that will give local people the opportunity to continue to live in their communities. We are looking forward to our first tenants moving into their new homes by the end of November and hope to continue our development programme to build more homes as soon as possible
