The NHS is disposing our former District General hospital site, this building was originally built by public subscription and has served the community of Market Harborough for over 100 years.
The, soon to be formed, Harborough Development Trust would like to bid for this site in order to develop a mixture of accommodation from entry level 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments to adapted properties designed for disabled tenants and also to include some co-living units.
It is the Trusts intention to construct these units to the highest affordable standards and to build sustainability into the very fabric of the build.
It is the Trusts aim to become a responsible landlord offering secure and affordable tenures to a mix of social groups while providing the trust with a revenue stream which will allow the development of future projects.
As you may recall, Transition Town Market Harborough was instrumental in the establishment of the Sustainable Harborough project in which we are still heavily involved and it is hoped that this Development Trust will be able to take over some of the project objectives when its funding finishes at the end of this year.
