On Tuesday 16th January Hightown was delighted to open eight new affordable homes on an attractive CALA Homes development in the village of Haddenham, near Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire.

Affordable housing is in short supply in Haddenham, where the average property sells for over £470,000* (*Rightmove) and these homes will help address a pressing local need.

The site (called 'Nightingale Place') includes an open public space and 25 homes in total, with six reserved for affordable rent for local people in housing need from Aylesbury Vale District Council's waiting list. Two homes have been sold through the shared ownership scheme to aspiring homeowners from the Vale of Aylesbury.

Hightown was joined by Cllr Susan Renshell, Chair of Aylesbury Vale District Council and David Truesdale, Chair fo the Haddenham Parish Council, who jointly opened the new homes. Mr Truesdale gave insight into the history of the site, which has been named 'Platers Road' after the J Plater's Carriage Works that occupied the site in previous centuries.
