It’s the beginning of July 2023 and we now have over half of our homes occupied, as the rental homes have become available.
Local families, some who have worked for years towards this outcome, were recently handed their keys and have started to make Hazelmead their home. They can now feel secure that their tenancy is assured and affordable, as rents are 60% of market value and these are beautiful, high quality eco homes.
Rebecca Ayling at her new home at Hazelmead knows Bridport is an extremely expensive place to rent, and many of our tenants were living in damp, high cost private rentals. We are all over the moon to be able to live in this fantastic neighbourhood.
Jack Rushforth, BCHA development manager, said:
“We are delighted to be able to offer these amazing shared ownership and rental properties at Hazelmead in this exciting development, combining sustainable building practices and materials, alongside the ethos of co-housing to create a community-driven neighbourhood with great quality homes. Residents will benefit from affordable homes, high EPC ratings and exceptionally low energy costs; all situated in the Dorset Area of National Beauty.”
