Cleator Moor construction firm to start work on affordable housing project in Keswick


Work on a new scheme to provide affordable rented accommodation in the heart of Keswick for local people is about to get underway. 

The Allerdale Borough Council-led project in Otley Road will see a former retail unit converted into four one-bedroom apartments. Once complete, the scheme will bring the empty building back to life after sitting empty for many years having previously been a cycling shop and gas company offices.  

The scheme has been developed after it was recognised by the council, following representations from businesses, that there is a shortfall of affordable accommodation in the town, in particular for local workers in the tourism industry.  

Work is due to begin on February 1st with the first people able to move into the units from autumn this year. 

Cllr Mike Johnson, Deputy Leader and Executive member for economic growth, community development and placemaking: “Creating thriving towns and villages is a key part of our 10-year council strategy and one of the ways we are looking to do that is by ensuring there are suitable, affordable, decent homes for everyone. 

“We know that there is a need for this type of housing in the Keswick area and this project will help local people and workers secure the accommodation they need.” 

William King, company directory of William King Construction who are the main contractors, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Allerdale Borough Council on this refurbishment project, bringing quality and affordable housing to the local community. 

“We have many years of experience within the building trade and keep up to date with the latest techniques and materials so we provide the best possible job satisfaction to our clients.” 

The plans gained planning approval from the Lake District National Park Authority last year.
