Our latest development, at Catherine's Walk in Barnsley, is now nearing completion, with the first homes ready from October 2019.
The £5.7 million development (part funded by a £2 million Homes England grant) comprises 8 apartments, 6 bungalows and 40 houses. Five of the homes are available for shared ownership and the remainder will be let for affordable rent.
As part of our longstanding commitment to protect the health and safety of our customers, we recently carried out full Fire Risk Assessments of all our schemes with shared, internal communal areas (such as an entrance lobby).
Dream of owning your own home but not sure if you can do it? Why not take a look at Shared Ownership.
It's a government backed scheme designed to help make home ownership affordable for first time buyers and those currently renting or living with family. Put simply, you buy a percentage share of a property and then rent the rest, with the option to increase the share you own at any time.
We are pleased to announce that Penningtons Choices have recently been appointed as our consultants to carry out our Fire Risk Assessments.The assessment programme will start in April 2019 and take around 8-10 weeks to fully complete.
They will only be visiting our properties where there is a shared internal communal area, such as an entrance lobby. Please click here for the full list of properties that will be visited this year.
Are you passionate about customers having a voice?

Do you want to challenge and influence how LYHA performs?
We are looking for customers who can be ‘critical friends’ to join our Customer Experience Committee and Customer Scrutiny Panel. The two groups have different roles, but members of both forums play a vital role in bringing about positive change to our services.
Estates Caretaker, Karl Howard, has been a member of our team for 33 years, having started at LYHA in 1985. During that time he has worked at pretty much all our sites across Yorkshire, from Whitby to Settle and from Barnsley to Leeds. So, who better to give us an insight into his working day at LYHA?
