A new affordable housing scheme has been officially opened in the county, thanks to the help of former Saffron Walden MP, Sir Alan Haselhurst.

The long-serving politician joined Hastoe Housing Association on July 3 to unveil the development in Chrishall – a rural setting of four dwellings available for rent.

Each home is built with environmentally-responsible standards in mind, and have been fitted with additional insulation, triple-glazed windows and air source heat pumps for residents to benefit from lower energy costs.

Sir Alan Haselhurst said: “It was a pleasure to be involved once again with Hastoe in the opening of another rural housing scheme in the Uttlesford district.

“The development at Chrishall fits perfectly with local need and has been carried out to a high standard of design and environmental efficiency. Congratulations are due to everyone who played a part in bringing this elegant project to completion.”

The opening was also joined by representatives from Uttlesford District Council and Chrishall Parish Council.
