Arun District Council hands over new homes in Yapton

A number of new council homes have been completed and are now ready to let, as part of Arun District Council's affordable housing programme.

The properties, at Charles Square in Yapton, are part of a 51-homes scheme which has been developed on an old nursery site by Crayfern Homes.

On Wednesday 23 March, 8 apartments were handed over to the Council. These properties are in addition to two houses that are already occupied. Crayfern Homes has subsequently acquired an additional strip of land to extend the site to the south which will accommodate another 5 rented homes. These will be ready to handover in summer 2022.

All 15 homes, across the 2 phases, will be let at below Local Housing Allowance (LHA), to make them more affordable. They all have a high energy performance rating, which is due in part to the heating and hot water being provided by air source heat pumps.

Councillor Jacky Pendleton, Housing and Wellbeing Committee Chair said:

“It was a privilege to attend the handover of these properties. Having looked round one of the apartments it is clear that these will make wonderful homes. The dwellings will help to house people who are registered with the council, and they form part of our programme to build 250 new council homes by 2027.”
