Worth Matravers, Old Quarry Close
New Homes for Local People
In 2019 East Boro, working in partnership with Dorset Council, started work on the development of a site in Worth Matravers. This site adjacent to Abbascombe Cottages was granted planning permission as an ’exception site’ to provide affordable homes for local people.
This new development of nine new homes was completed and handed over to East Boro on 24th March 2020 and we are excited to showcase these properties.
These homes have now been let or sold to local people. Preference was given to people with a strong connection with the parish of Worth Matravers.
Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) Properties
There were four properties for sale – one x 1 bedroom bungalow and three x 2 bedroom houses. These properties were sold to local people at 75% of market value and sold with a covenant ensuring that any resales are also to local people at 75% of the then current market value.
There are also five properties which are now rented out – one x 1 bedroom bungalow, one x 2 bedroom bungalow, one x 2 bedroom house and two x 3 bedroom houses.
These homes were let by East Boro to people nominated by Dorset Council who selected their nominees from local people in housing need and registered with Dorset Home Choice.
