Larkrise has been granted reserved matters planning by a unanimous vote from the planning committee. The permission is to build 20 dwellings, parking, a community house and a large play area. These will be plotted around communal green spaces for productive gardening and creating wild spaces.
The houses will be available through an exciting new ownership model designed to make good quality housing more accessible, affordable and held as so for generations to come. Mutual home ownership is a new way for people to own an equity stake in their homes at an affordable rate (40% of net income) without needing to raise a mortgage. We are currently modelling to find a way to incorporate rental options within this model.
