Cirencester Housing has been granted planning permission for 12 affordable homes
Affordable housing to serve the parishes of Bagendon and North Cerney.
Cirencester Housing has been granted planning permission for 12 affordable homes in North Cerney which will be ready for occupancy in the Spring of 2019.
Cirencester Housing is developing affordable housing for local people. They pride themselves on working with local communities to bring affordable homes to rural villages, helping sustain rural economies, populations and vital community services and hopes that other communities will be inspired by this community-led effort.
A generous grant contribution towards the development was secured from CDC.
Due to excellent cooperation, local community support and CDC's professional processing of the application, these homes will be realised in about half the time of similar rural exception schemes.
It is hoped that other villages will be interested in working together to bring affordable homes to rural communities, helping sustain rural economies, populations and vital community services.
Local Ward Councillor Jennifer Forde said, "North Cerney is a fine example of a fully functioning rural village – it has a wonderful primary school, a village hall, a pub and a church and is on a main bus route between Cheltenham and Cirencester. It's in everyone's interest to prevent rural Cotswolds becoming the preserve of the wealthy and isolated elderly. North Cerney recognises this and has supported this development from the start without a single objection."
