York Housing Association is celebrating the completion of its £2 million affordable housing development, Jubilee Court, in the Yorkshire village of Elvington.
The scheme comprises 18 properties, including 12 for affordable rents, and six shared ownership houses, funded by YHA and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). The construction was undertaken by Elvington-based Hu Ha Developments.
"Property prices in the commuter villages around York continue to rise, and often this can make it difficult for young families to stay in the places where they have grown up, and that is why developments of this type are so important for local communities," said York Housing Association chief executive Julia Histon.
Jubilee Court received £330,000 from the HCA.
