AN AFFORDABLE housing open day will be held on the next Wednesday, July 23 at The Pavilion in Nawton near Beadlam, Ryedale, from 3pm to 7pm.

In 2011, Yorkshire Housing built ten rented properties in Nawton for people from Nawton and Beadlam.

After another parish survey showed a need for housing, planning was approved earlier this year for another eight homes in Station Road, Nawton.

The event will give people with a local connection to Nawton or Beadlam chance to see the site plans and to find out about how to apply for one of the affordable homes homes.

Representatives will be there from Yorkshire Housing and Ryedale District Council to answer questions and to help people to register an interest.
