Rural Housing Week – 2024

This Rural Housing Week, we at Harper Group are proud to champion the importance of high-quality housing in rural communities.

Rural areas are the backbone of Britain, offering a unique sense of community and connection to nature. However, access to affordable and sustainable housing can be a challenge. At Harper Group, we are committed to bridging this gap.

We believe that investing in rural housing offers a multitude of benefits:

  • Economic Growth: Affordable housing attracts a wider range of residents, including young families, professionals, and entrepreneurs. This diversity fuels local businesses and strengthens the rural economy.
  • Community Vibrancy: A stable housing environment fosters a sense of belonging and encourages community engagement. It ensures a mix of ages and backgrounds, leading to a more vibrant and dynamic rural life.
  • Sustainable Development: Modern, energy-efficient housing solutions in rural areas promote sustainable living and reduce the environmental impact of new builds.

We are proud to be contributing to the solution through developments in several beautiful villages:

  • Llanigon: Bringing much-needed new homes to this picturesque Welsh village, utilising air source heat pumps across all properties.
  • Richards Castle: Offering a variety of dwellings to suit the needs of the local community utilising PV panels across all properties.
  • Oak Tree Close, Bearley: Delivering modern, energy-efficient homes in a sought-after location utilising Passivhaus construction methods.
  • Hanley Swan: Providing high-quality housing in this idyllic Worcestershire village utilising both air source heat pumps and PV panels across all properties.

These projects not only provide essential housing, but also contribute to the social and economic fabric of rural communities.

We are committed to playing our part in ensuring everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the beauty and benefits of rural living.

Harper Group is committed to playing its part. We work closely with local authorities and housing associations to develop innovative rural housing solutions that meet the needs of each community.
