Work is about to start to create two brand new council family homes in St Clement’s Gardens in Boscombe.
Once complete, the homes will join the current council housing stock providing good quality family accommodation for local people.
Councillor Robert Lawton, Cabinet Member for Housing said, “Providing affordable housing is a key priority for the council, particularly the development of good quality family housing.
“The development at St Clement’s Gardens is one of several schemes that are being put forward to provide 105 new council homes in the borough. This will not only go some way in helping to alleviate those residents currently on the council’s housing register but also contribute positively to the regeneration of Boscombe.”
The development will be made possible thanks to £283,000 funded through a mixture of investment from the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), prudential borrowing and other funding sources.
The two three-bedroom houses are due to be complete in July 2013.
