Affordable bungalows to be built as part of Doncaster Council’s New Build Scheme
Four bungalows are being built on a former depot site in Fossard Close, Wheatley, under Doncaster Council’s New Build Scheme.
The properties are being built in a partnership between Doncaster Council, St Leger Homes, the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and the developer Willmott Partnership Homes, backed by a combination of HCA grant and funding allocated from the council’s capital programme.
The scheme is one of ten sites which will see 124 council homes built across the borough, including apartments, houses and bungalows ranging from one to four bedrooms.
Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones said: “I have been working to support the development of the kinds of housing that people in Doncaster need and want. That means a wide range of quality homes - including affordable housing and council homes - for people of all ages and backgrounds, from young families to older people. I am proud that we are building quality new council homes that are much needed by families across the borough.”
Mick Werritt, director of property services at St Leger Homes added: “I am delighted that this new build programme will provide affordable housing, helping to meet the needs of people in Doncaster. The bungalows being built here today will be part of a bigger scheme creating good quality homes for people across the borough, from young families to older residents.”
The properties, which are set to be completed by March 2018, will be managed by St Leger Homes and let at an affordable rent to people who meet the local lettings policy criteria.
