Proposed Affordable Rural Housing in
West Kingsdown Parish
School Lane, West Kingsdown
What Is Proposed?
We are proposing to design, build and manage a small development in School Lane of eight affordable rented and two shared ownership homes for local people. The scheme would comprise the following homes:
2x one bedroom flats
4x two bedroom houses
2x two bedroom houses (for shared ownership)
2x three bedroom houses
In addition, 3x three bedroom open market homes are proposed. These will provide valuable cross-subsidy for the affordable homes. Two plots will be for sale to local people wishing to downsize and one will be retained by the landowner. You can learn more about cross subsidy in our frequently asked questions.
