The first few homes on an often controversial new housing estate in Carlisle have been put up for sale.
The £150 million development at Crindledyke Farm will eventually provide 850 homes on the outskirts of the City.
Proposals for the project were first put forward by Story Homes in 2008 but complaints about the suitability of the development followed by a public enquiry brought delays.
While most have now welcomed the new estate for the benefits and the jobs it brings, doubts still remain over whether it will help solve a housing crisis and who in a recession will afford the homes.
