SKIPTON Properties has announced that it has partnered with Auxesia Homes, a provider of affordable rent, rent to buy and shared-ownership new build homes across the North of England.

Auxesia Homes finds homes for those who serve the country, prioritising former and serving members of the British Armed Forces, NHS and emergency services.

The scheme will bring 11 two-bedroom homes to market for purchase under shared-ownership at Bolton Gardens, Silsden. The development is for 77 natural stone and slate homes. Work is well underway at the site and Skipton Properties and Auxesia Homes have now launched their first off-plan homes for standard and shared ownership sales.

Caroline van Niekerk, Skipton Properties sales, marketing & design director said: “I am very excited to offer shared-ownership properties to our hard-working servicemen and women, but particularly, in light of the pandemic, to those serving the NHS.”

Ryan Blair, chief operating officer at Auxesia Homes added: “We passionately believe that Britain’s Armed Forces, NHS and emergency service personnel deserve to be given the highest priority in securing affordable properties.
