New Homes for Council Tenants

It’s an exciting time with the Council’s programme of new homes being built in the Borough, as part of its commitment to providing much needed affordable rented homes for local people on the Council’s housing register.

The Council has received planning permission to develop three new sites at Milton Road, Keary Road and Mead Crescent providing a total of 16 new homes, including three wheelchair accessible bungalows. The planning documents can be found on the Council’s website at

We are also seeking planning permission to develop our garage site at Gilbert Close which will provide an additional 14 new homes (subject to planning permission being granted). The planning application can be viewed at: and activeTab=summary.

On Temple Hill, residents are now settled in to the Council’s previous new developments at Hill View and Coleridge Road.

Hill View and Coleridge Road, the Council’s first housing developments in 25 years, are a mix of houses and flats providing 76 homes. The former cash office at Temple Hill Square has also been converted to provide six one bedroom flats.

All our new homes are or will be made available to local people most in need of affordable housing. They also enable much needed movement on the Council’s overburdened Housing Register.
