MP Luke Hall and local councillors attend ceremony to open new homes in Frampton Cotterell
A ribbon cutting ceremony has marked the opening of six affordable homes in Frampton Cotterell, South Gloucestershire.
Representatives from Knightstone Housing, South Gloucestershire Council, the Homes and Community Agency and Speller Metcalfe were joined by Luke Hall MP for the opening event on Friday 10 July.
The ceremony took place as part of the National Housing Federation’s (NHF) Rural Housing Week, which aims to raise awareness of the need for more affordable housing in rural areas across the country.
Nick Medhurst, Chair of our Board, said: “There is a critical need for affordable housing in rural areas, to keep England’s villages alive. We’re supporting the NHF’s call for more rural housing by building the right homes in the right places, at affordable prices.
“Building more affordable homes in rural areas like Frampton Cotterell benefits the entire community. It helps local people to remain living in the areas they’ve grown up in, often near friends and family, and it also supports local businesses.”
Councillor Ben Stokes, Chair of Adults and Housing Committee, said: “I’m delighted that through our partnership with Knightstone we’ve been able to provide six much needed homes for families in Frampton Cotterell.”
