MP visits Yorkshire Housing development in Grassington

Julian Smith MP visited Yorkshire Housing’s new development in Grassington with the Chief Executive of the housing group, Mervyn Jones. They discussed the proposals put forward in the Government’s housing white paper and the measures being taken to provide affordable housing and starter homes.

Following their discussion, Julian was shown the housing development at Aynham Close in Grassington and met one of the residents, Steve to hear his thoughts about the housing scheme.

Julian Smith MP said: ‘I valued having the opportunity to speak with Mervyn about the provision of affordable housing in our area, particularly as this is something that is vital to maintaining communities in rural areas like ours.

‘It was great to meet Steve and to hear about how Government supported-schemes such as this one are helping young, local people to work and live in the National Park.’
