The Estate

The estate spans six streets: Dalmain Road, Ewart Road, Firs Close, Grove Road, Malham Road, and Wastdale Road. These are interconnected by footpaths leading to a central green.

Although the co-op takes its name from Ewart Road, which was the first part of the estate to be built, the co-op’s office is situated on the corner of Wastdale Road along with a community centre (Ewart Community Hall), which is also managed by the co-op and hosts a number of community groups as well as being available for hire by residents and community groups.

Housing

Just over half the 253 properties (133 as of 2017) are occupied by secure council tenants; the remaining 120 properties have been sold to residents under the Right To Buy.

The tables below show how many houses and flats there are, and of what type. Please note that these tables do not distinguish between rented and leasehold properties, and that only a couple of vacancies come up each year.

Garages, store-sheds and office space

In addition to the integral garages the co-op has some separate garages, sheds etc. for renting to residents. Numbers are as follows:

The co-op also has 87 parking spaces. Garages and sheds etc. are usually in demand, so there is a waiting list for the small number which become vacant each year.

* The lock-up garages and shared office space can also be rented by non-residents.
