New Homes for Council Tenants

It remains 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 received planning permission to develop four new sites at Milton Road, Keary Road, Mead Crescent and Gilbert Close, providing a total of 32 new homes, including three wheelchair accessible bungalows.

If you would like to view the plans, the planning documents can be found on the Council’s website at

The Council is working in partnership with TSG Building Services to construct the new homes on all four sites.  It is anticipated that Milton Road, Keary Road and Mead Crescent will be completed this year (2021) and Gilbert Close in 2022.

Below are some photos of the sites as at April 2021.

On Temple Hill, residents have been settled in to the Council’s previous new developments at Hill View and Coleridge Road for several years.

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.
