The Lydden Meadow development is comprised of five Assured Tenancy (rented) and five Shared Ownership (part-equity) properties. All properties have a Code 4 Sustainable Homes certificate that means they are at the leading edge of energy efficiency and comfort.The cost of building these houses has been greatly assisted by grants from the HCA (Homes and Communities Agency), West Dorset District Council and the Tudor Trust. This allows them to be affordable to people on average rural incomes.
