Stonewater create new homes in Burley-in-Wharfedale

New Stonewater homes help address shortage of affordable rental housing in Burley-in-Wharfedale.

A smart new housing development of nine village homes in Burley-in-Wharfedale is set to address a shortage of affordable rental accommodation for local families.

The new homes in Scalebor Gardens have been built by leading social housing provider Stonewater in partnership with Bellway Homes. The new community of six two-bedroom houses and three, three-bedroom family houses, all for social rent, sits within Bellway Homes’ recent Scalebor Grange development in Moor Lane, on the former site of Scalebor Park Hospital which closed in 2009.

Built in stone and designed in keeping with the architectural character of the village the new homes have been designed to maximise energy-efficiency with high levels of thermal insulation to keep running costs as low as possible.

“It’s great to see these much-needed affordable rental homes in Scalebor Gardens completed,” says Jonathan Layzell, Stonewater’s Executive Director for Development. “We believe that everybody should have a warm, safe and comfortable place they call home. Good housing benefits health, helps children do better at school and produces happy and sustainable communities. It also keeps families and communities together.”

The Scalebor Gardens development follows a similar small scheme of eight affordable rental homes which Stonewater completed last year in Braithwaite Village, Keighley, with Barratt Homes.
