Edge View, our stunning development in Long Preston, Craven, won Shared Ownership Scheme of the Year award at the Northern Housing Awards 2022. The Snugg Homes team were absolutely delighted to be given the award:
Nestled within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this development of eight Shared Ownership properties, wowed the judges with its complete transformation of a disused farm building to bring new, affordable homes to a local conservation area.
With the surrounding backdrop an area of ‘Outstanding Beauty’, each home was designed to fit in with the traditional character of Long Preston and provide home-owners the opportunity to live in a breath-taking rural area where no shared ownership properties had been built in over five years.
All eight Shared Ownership properties were sold within just one month through Snugg Homes, part of the Jigsaw Group Group, and all purchasers had a local connection to the village. This was Jigsaw’s first Homes England grant-funded scheme in Craven.
Operations Director of Development Garnet Fazackerley said: “This development busts the myth that affordable and Shared Ownership properties are only in urban areas and city centres. We are proud to have delivered these homes sensitively in this conservation area and delighted that they were bought by local residents, who would otherwise have been priced out of the market.”
Thank you to the judges and to Stanley Investments Ltd for sponsoring the award.
