Babergh District Council has taken on six new affordable housing properties.
Property developers, Foxley Country Homes, have presented the keys for six new build homes on the Ballingdon Meadows Development in Sudbury to Councillor Jan Osborne, Deputy Leader of Babergh District Council.
The 43 new build homes on the Ballingdon Meadows include the provision of six affordable rent properties, comprising of 2 three bedroom and 4 two bedroom homes.
Babergh District Council successfully bid for the properties and these will now be managed as part of the council’s housing stock - supporting the need for more affordable housing and providing much needed accommodation for six families with local connections.
Cllr Jan Osborne, Babergh District Council’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “This is a wonderful initiative and great example of what can be achieved with developers and the council working in partnership. These are lovely properties, and we are thrilled to be able to add them to our housing stock and support the local community. We look forward to handing over the keys to our first tenants in the next few weeks, once we have full access to the site.”
Foxley Country Homes completed the affordable rent provision as part of the first phase of the development, the remaining 37 homes are due to be completed and ready for occupation in the spring.
Kevin Gregory, Foxley County Homes Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to provide much needed affordable housing as part of our development at Ballingdon Meadows. We are thrilled to be helping the local community and look forward to working with Babergh District Council again in the future.”
