New homes in Bakewell

yeld road24

Three affordable homes being built on Yeld Road in Bakewell are due to be completed in May 2024.

Homes for local people

Built in partnership with emh, the homes will be available for social rent and only offered to people with a connection to the village, enabling local people to stay in, or return to, Bakewell. There will be two 2-bedroomed houses and one 1-bedroom house.

Designed to fit in

The homes will be built using natural materials such as limestone, gritstone and blue slate which will be sourced from local quarries and suppliers, minimising the production and transport costs.

Energy efficient homes

And the design follows a ‘fabric first’ approach with high levels of insulation and air tightness incorporated to help the building envelope perform 20% better than the minimum building regulation standards. They will also have air source heat pumps to help keep energy bills low for the new residents.
