Cross Keys Homes (CKH) is welcoming new residents to its first new homes in Fenland District since 2017. The brand new homes at Snowley Park, Whittlesey, will help ease the pressure on housing waiting lists, offering affordable, quality homes to local people. With seven families moving in at the end of May, another four affordable rented homes are due for completion this month.
The leading housing association, is working with respected homebuilder David Wilson Homes to deliver a total of 31 homes for affordable rent and 6 for shared ownership over 2 years on the Buttercross Park development. Supported by £150,000 grant funding from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, the final affordable homes on this site will be available for people to move into in early 2020.
Cross Keys Homes’ Development Manager, Paul Barham, said: “CKH exists to provide affordable homes because we know that it’s almost impossible to live life the way you want to without the security of a roof over your head.
“With an ambitious development programme and the funding arrangements to match, we’re exploring other potential development sites in the area and working really well in partnership with Fenland District Council so that we can continue to invest in new homes and the families and communities that really need them.”
Councillor Dee Laws, Portfolio Holder for Planning at Fenland District Council, said: “Delivering affordable homes for local people is a key priority for this Council to not only meet the housing needs of our district but to ensure people can afford to live in the communities in which they grew up and have strong family connections. We’re pleased to be working with Cross Keys Homes and other partners to help make new developments like this possible and provide good quality, affordable homes that are built to the highest standards.”
