The development in Peter Road provides eight homes for rent for people who have connections with the village or nearby area.

Quentin Gardens has been built by the Two Castles Housing Association and Esh Group working in partnership as Hadrian Development Solutions.

Part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) with support from Carlisle City Council and Cumbria County Council, the development includes four two-bedroom bungalows and four three-bedroom houses. They have been built using energy-efficient features including photovoltaic panels to help reduce bills.

Rob Brittain, property services director at Two Castles Housing Association, said: “Two Castles is committed to delivering high quality, affordable housing across Cumbria.

“We’re delighted to have worked with our partners on this scheme, which has delivered a fantastic range of quality energy-efficient homes that will benefit local families in the greatest housing need.”

David Halfacre, Chairman of Esh Property Services, said: “These homes are a testimony to the hard work by all who have worked on this project, from the designer to the decorator.

“We wish the residents well as they look forward to Christmas in their new homes.”
