Ormskirk Advertiser - - Predator Jailed For Blitz Of Messages -

IF you are look­ing for a new home in Ruf­ford, keep an eye out for new af­ford­able homes avail­able to rent and buy that are ex­pected to be com­pleted shortly.

West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil has ne­go­ti­ated an ar­range­ment with Jones Homes to pro­vide 14 af­ford­able homes on their pop­u­lar de­vel­op­ment at Roseacre Gar­dens, Ruf­ford.

It is in­tended that all the homes will be owned by a hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion.

The coun­cil has nom­i­na­tion rights for the rental prop­er­ties, con­sist­ing of four two-bed houses, four three-bed houses and two two-bed bun­ga­lows.

Ini­tial pref­er­ence will be given to house­holds with a con­nec­tion to the Ruf­ford area, in line with the coun­cil’s pol­icy.

The re­main­ing four prop­er­ties con­sist of three two-bed houses and one three-bed house.

These will be avail­able for shared own­er­ship sale once a hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion has been iden­ti­fied for the site.

In the mean­time, if you are in­ter­ested in shared own­er­ship on this site, send your con­tact de­tails to the coun­cil’s hous­ing strat­egy and de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme manager at jonathan.mitchell@west lancs.gov.uk. Your de­tails will be passed on to the hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tion who ac­quires the homes.

Jac­qui Sin­nott-Lacey, the coun­cil’s di­rec­tor of hous­ing and in­clu­sion, said: “The coun­cil has made a com­mit­ment to al­lo­ca­tion pro­vid­ing good qual­ity af­ford­able hous­ing.

“The de­vel­op­ment of these homes for rent and shared own­er­ship sale is an­other ex­am­ple of how we are de­liv­er­ing that prom­ise to peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ties.”

The rental homes will be on HomeFin­der, the coun­cil’s choice-based let­ting scheme. You must be fully reg­is­tered with HomeFin­der so you can bid for prop­er­ties.

In­for­ma­tion on how to reg­is­ter for HomeFin­der is avail­able on the web­site www.west­lanc­shome finder.co.uk.

If you are in­ter­ested in the rented prop­er­ties, please reg­is­ter as soon as pos­si­ble and then check the web­site reg­u­larly as they will be ad­ver­tised soon.
