The Bakers Place Development is the result of a partnership between social housing provider Riverside, Building Contractor Atkinson’s and Eden District Council built on the site of the former Greggs Bakery.
The scheme consists of 15 new affordable homes with a mix of 2 and 3 bedroomed properties. 12 of the homes are for affordable rent and three are shared ownership.
All the homes have been made available only to people with local connections to Penrith.
The Bakers Place - Bake Off - took place on Monday 1st September with cakes provided by Atkinson’s, Eden District Council and Riverside. The winner was unanimously voted as the Riverside cake depicting the houses and was ceremoniously cut and thoroughly enjoyed by all.The remaining cakes were donated to Impact Housing and Barnardos who manage the projects that benefit local young people at Eden Rural Foyer in Penrith.
Well done to the Contract Management Team including - Neil, Jonathan, Nigel, Ian and all who worked on the site.
