Slough Labour have a proud record of delivering affordable housing for local residents – having provided over 600 new built council homes in the last few years and investing over £17 million in the last year alone buying properties to be let to Slough residents at affordable rents.
We are delighted that our proud house building record shows no signs of slowing down with plans announced for the 4th phase of our small sites strategy which aims to bring small sites, such as old garages and parcels of land not into use for new homes.
The fourth phase includes:
- Turton Way, Chalvey – four new two-bedroom homes on a disused car parking and garage site
- Belfast Avenue, Manor Park – one four-bedroom, six three-bedroom and five two-bedroom homes, including two homes adapted for use by people with disabilities on a disused site bought from Herschel Grammar School
- Newport Road, Lynch Hill – two two-bedroom homes on a disused garage site
- Wentworth Avenue, Britwell – 12 three-bedroom homes and a new ex-serviceman’s club on the site of the former Britwell ex-serviceman’s club
- Cheviot Road, Langley – three two-bedroom homes on a disused garage site
- Bowyer Drive, Cippenham – one two-bedroom and two three-bedroom homes on a disused garage site.
Councillor Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing, said:
“These small sites, in addition to the six in phase three, six in phase two and four in phase one, are the reality of our strategy to utilise small plots of land – garages, derelict properties and infill – to provide desperately needed, quality council homes for the people of our town.
“With more than 130 new properties being built just in these small sites, alongside ones in SUR’s new developments, we will be offering even more people access to decent quality affordable homes.”
