Spelthorne Borough Council is celebrating the completion of three new two-bedroom homes in Sunbury. This is the first of three projects the Council is hoping to complete over the next 18 months as part of its ambitious plans to increase the provision of much needed housing across the Borough.
Built on the site of the former derelict Churchill Hall in Sunbury-on-Thames, the Council developed the properties to provide private rented accommodation for local residents. The homes are energy efficient and built to a high spec with car parking and gardens.
Income generated by Spelthorne's commercial property investments has helped fund the project.
Cllr Mark Francis, Spelthorne's Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "This is a very exciting initiative. I'm extremely pleased with what we've achieved and hope the tenants are very happy in their new homes. Spelthorne Council is committed to increasing the availability of good quality affordable housing in the Borough and look forward to delivering more schemes like this in the near future."
One of the new tenants, Katie Bagley, said: "We were really pleased when we had a look around our new home. We've been waiting for a very long time so it's very exciting to be given this opportunity as it really is a lovely place."
