209Villagers living in Stillington, near Easingwold who are looking to rent rather than buy a property are being invited to attend an open day next week.

The scheme which has been built by Daniel Gath Homes at Back Lane Stillington, will contain a number of homes that will be owned and managed by Broadacres Housing Association.

Interested residents who want to find out more about the two and three bedroom houses and  how to apply for one should pop along to the Village Hall in Stillington on Wednesday 17 February between 4 – 7 pm

Hambleton’s Rural Housing Enabler, Amanda Madden, will be on hand to answer questions, and discuss the allocations process.  Light refreshments will be available.

The proposed scheme is part of the District Council’s commitment to provide local homes for local people to allow them to remain living and working in the area they were raised.

For more information on the scheme contact Amanda Madden, on 01609 767048; or Amanda.madden@hambleton.gov.uk
