DoLHT exhibits home plans for Draycott in the Clay

The Duke of Lancaster Housing Trust has announced an exhibition highlighting its plans for six new high-quality, affordable homes at Draycott in the Clay that will be for local people.

The Trust is exhibiting its plans at Draycott in the Clay village hall, Pipehay Lane, Draycott in the Clay, on the 18th of April from 7pm to 9pm. They are keen for the local community to have an input into the design of the scheme so interested residents are invited to attend the exhibition and put forward their thoughts at the event.

Built to a high standard and following the Trust’s own design code, the proposed homes will be preferentially offered to local people that would otherwise struggle to afford the cost of residential accommodation in their area. The design of the new homes will be sympathetic to the surrounding area and will preserve the village’s aesthetic appeal.

Commenting on the announcement, Duke of Lancaster Housing Trust trustee Paul Clarke said: “The Trust aims to address the need for affordable housing for local people of all ages including those who may have been obliged to leave their communities due to a lack of suitable and affordable accommodation.

“Our intention is to create a superbly designed, sensitively developed scheme which will enhance the village for generations to come.”

The Duke of Lancaster Housing Trust is a registered charity that specialises in providing high-quality, affordable homes in rural communities where the cost of buying can force locals out of their area. It recently completed a scheme for 12 new homes in the picturesque Lancashire village of Dunsop Bridge.

Anyone wishing to register their interest in the proposed homes, should contact: The Duke of Lancaster Housing Trust, 1 Lancaster Place, Strand, London WC2E 7ED with their names, address, telephone number and email.
