New council homes
Wed 15 April 2015, 11:49 am
The first council homes have been built in Medway for 40 years.
The multimillion pound project has seen 23 homes built in Gillingham and Twydall, delivered in a partnership between the Chartway Group and Medway Council.
Homes are a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties and properties with disabled facilities.
The next phase of the scheme will see 32 one and two-bedroom bungalows being built at Beatty Avenue in Gillingham.
Councillor Howard Doe said: “These are the first of many new council houses to be built by Medway Council.
“We wanted to offer people the chance to rent good quality, energy-efficient homes that they can afford and now here we are with the first phase finished and with families settled in.
“I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the consultation events and all those who have worked so hard to get these houses built.”
