Five of the homes are for sale as shared ownership to first time buyers.

“Throughout the planning and building work, we have worked closely with Scarborough Council, Filey Town Council, our main contractors Strategic Team Group and the Homes and Communities Agency to make sure the homes were built to the best modern design standards, and meet the needs and aspirations of the local people who will be living in them.”

The development was partly funded to the tune of £800,000 by Government body, the Homes and Communities Agency.
