Twenty-nine new affordable properties are up for grabs at a prestigious development in Clitheroe.

The properties at Ribble Meadows, in Henthorn Road, include one, two, three and four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom bungalows for affordable rent or shared ownership. They have been developed by Taylor Wimpey in association with Ribble Valley Borough Council and Adactus Housing Association.

Adactus is holding a registration event at the Ribble Valley Homes offices in Station Road, Clitheroe, from noon to 2 pm next Tuesday, May 6th. Allocations and lettings staff from Adactus will be on hand with information about the properties and to assist interested people with the application process.

Colin Hirst, head of housing and regeneration at the council, said: “The provision of affordable housing is one of the biggest challenges facing us and we are working closely with housing associations to overcome it. We are delighted to have supported this excellent scheme, which brings much-needed high-quality affordable and shared ownership accommodation to Clitheroe.”

House prices in Ribble Valley are way above the national average and first-time buyers are forced out of communities their families have lived in for generations. There is also a dearth of accommodation suitable for young single people and the elderly. Anyone looking for an affordable property can contact the council’s housing team on 01200 414567.
