Affordable: Two Castles Housing Association homes in the Parkview development in Raffles, Carlisle

Two Castles Housing Association has taken delivery of 22 new properties from housebuilder Lovell which will now be advertised as affordable homes.

The three and four bedroom houses are at Parkview, Brookside.

Two Castles worked in partnership with Lovell and Carlisle City Council on the project, which is intended to regenerate the once-notorious estate and provide high quality homes for those in greatest need.

Stephanie Murphy, chief executive of Two Castles Housing Association, said: “There is great demand in Carlisle for high quality affordable homes to rent and we are very pleased indeed to be able to go some way towards meeting that need with this fantastic development.

“The provision of affordable homes is a high priority for Two Castles and we are delighted to have worked in partnership with Lovell and Carlisle City Council.”

Lovell area manager Phil Houghton said: “It is great to be working in this new and innovative partnership with Two Castles and very satisfying to see people’s housing needs being met. Our ongoing partnership with Carlisle City Council has made this possible, continuing the successful regeneration of Raffles.”

Mike Mitchelson, leader of the city council, said: “Carlisle City Council is committed to working with housing associations to address housing needs across the city. This project demonstrates that co-ordinated and considered partnership working can achieve real results for the people of Carlisle, helping to revitalise and regenerate an area creating affordable homes for those most in need.”

Two Castles Housing employs 100 staff in offices in Carlisle, Kendal, Whitehaven and Newcastle.

It owns and manages more than 3,400 properties across the north of England.
