No place like home

NEW affordable homes in Chinley are on target to be completed next month.

The eight houses and two bungalows on Buxton Road, constructed using natural stone and slate, are being provided by Peak District Rural Housing Association (PDRHA), with assistance from East Midlands Housing Group. Grants have come from the Homes and Community Agency and High Peak Borough Council.

Alison Clamp, from PDRHA, said: “We are delighted with this scheme. It will be lovely to see people moving in soon.”

The houses will be rented to local people who would otherwise be priced out of living in the village.

They will be advertised on the Home Options website from today (Thursday). People with close ties to Chinley can apply at www.home-options.org or on 0845 129 8075.
