New housing scheme will 'meet the needs' of vulnerable young people

“I’m thrilled to see the first tenants of this new development now enjoying their new homes. The scheme will provide much needed accommodation for vulnerable young people in the Kendal area. By SLDC and Fairoak’s working together they have been able to ensure that the Kendal Bowman development will meet the needs of vulnerable young people and like all other sheltered housing schemes, we expect a high demand for these types of properties.”

– Claire Hensman, the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria
