Affordable housing scheme in North Yorkshire village is now underway

The Hayfields development will provide 12 new homes to the rural village of Huby.

Esh’s affordable housing division has commenced work on a new development known as Hayfields which will provide 12 new homes in the centre of Huby.

Delivered on behalf of Broadacres Housing Association, the £1.8m scheme consists of eight rented and four shared-ownership properties and has been supported with £486,000 of funding from Homes England. Due for completion in early 2021, the two- and three-bedroom properties will be allocated to people with a connection to Huby or the wider Hambleton area.

Located in Huby – a North Yorkshire village situated between York and Easingwold – the development forms part of Broadacres’ strategy to ensure rural communities remain affordable and sustainable for future generations.

Gail Teasdale, Chief Executive at Broadacres, said: “We are delighted to be well underway on our latest residential development in North Yorkshire.

“It comes on the back of recently completed schemes in Malton and Helmsley and a development very close to completion at Carlton Minniott.

“The schemes all have one thing in common and that is they are providing homes, either rented or for sale, for people with connections to these rural communities so we can ensure they remain sustainable for future generations.

“It is Broadacres’ vision to become the best rural housing provider in the UK and Huby is an excellent example of the kind of scheme that, working closely with our local partners, will enable us to realise this ultimate goal.” 

We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with Broadacres. This scheme is a welcome addition to our £30m portfolio of commercial build and affordable housing across Teesside and North Yorkshire. This neat, well situated development will provide much need affordable housing which is key to ensuring rural communities remain sustainable for future generations.”
