New Homes

The Council’s New Homes Delivery Programme  is delivering 600 new homes including a minimum of 300 social rent homes, alongside open market homes to rent and other community and employment facilities. 

All of these new homes will be developed on sites owned by the Council. We have also committed to building all the new homes without the loss of any existing homes.

The New Homes Delivery Programme is currently being delivered in three phases.

Phase 1

In Phase 1 the following four sites have been identified as being suitable to deliver new homes and facilities following consultation with the local community. They will deliver 98 homes which will be delivered at various tenures.

Work has now started on 175-177 Kensal Road and 15-17 Hewer Street, with work due to start on Acklam Road and 54 St Helens Gardens in 2022.

Design information

All new homes will adopt similar designs for social, intermediate and market rent properties and will offer a high standard of design to reflect the Council’s stated commitment to sustainability. This will include:

  • high standards of insulation
  • careful selection of construction materials and methodology
  • heating and hot water systems optimising renewable energy to reduce fuel bills and move towards zero carbon objectives.

The programme aims to include new community, educational and employment facilities on all suitable sites.
