Riccall Development Handed Over

September 21, 2018

Starfish is pleased to announce the Selby Riccall development has now officially been handed over to Selby District Housing Trust, after a successful handover event. The development provides 5 modern family homes for affordable rent in the small rural village of Riccall in Selby, which will be managed by Selby District Council. The official name of the street is "Jubilee Close", which was chosen by Nicola Rodwell, 10, from Riccall Primary School following a Name The Street Competition run by Starfish and Selby DC - in order to engage the local community with the development. Starfish Chief Executive, Martin Gerrelli said:

"From concept, through to completion the scheme has been a benchmark to repurpose underused land into sustainable housing. The scheme has delivered on all the principles of the Social Value Act 2012 by providing warm and safe places for families while providing revenue into the local community."
