Building work is under way at three new housing development sites in Wandsworth, as part of the council’s long-running Hidden Homes initiative.
The developments, at Thessaly Road (pictured), Deeley Road and Stewarts Road, will provide a total of 57 new council homes, ranging in size from one to four bedrooms, with works being carried out by Glenman Corporation and expected to be completed in around summer 2018.
Cllr Paul Ellis, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “Through our Hidden Homes initiative, Wandsworth is one of the few authorities to have consistently built new council homes to meet local need, with more than 250 completed so far, and sites identified across the borough to build another 300 within the next three to five years.
“Providing new, high quality homes for local people is a key part of the council’s Aspirations programme to improve the quality of life across the borough through new housing, employment and training support, and access to sporting and cultural opportunities.”
The new council homes are being built on three sites, 15 on the corner of Thessaly Road and Deeley Road, in a four-storey block of eight flats and a row of seven two-storey houses; 22 in a four-storey block on Stewarts Road; and 20 in a new four- and five-storey block on Deeley Road.
