Julian visits York Housing Association Properties in Elvington

January 15, 2016

Last week Julian met with Julia Histon, Chief Executive of York Housing Association, at their base in Huntington to discuss how shared equity housing can help people get on the property ladder.

He then visited their site in Elvington where York Housing Association have built 18 affordable homes to date, and met with residents to discuss the scheme and to hear their thoughts on shared equity and how it has impacted their lives.

The visit was particularly timely as the Third Reading of the Housing and Planning Bill has just been completed in the House of Commons, which will bring in a number of changes to make owning your own home and getting on the property ladder more accessible.

Speaking after the meeting Julian said, “It was a pleasure to meet with Julia and local residents in Elvington last week. It was clear to see the many benefits of shared ownership schemes and how successful small-scale sites of affordable housing can be in keeping people within their community in rural areas.

“Strong community links play a vital role in all housing schemes, and I believe it is important that these arrangements should directly benefit local people.”
