More affordable homes complete as council's programme makes progress

Quality shared ownership properties completed in Upavon

Published 28 June 2022

Seven new shared ownership houses have recently been completed in Upavon, as Wiltshire Council's drive to provide 1,000 affordable homes over the next decade continues.

The new homes have been built at Whistledown Farm in Upavon by Redcliffe Homes.

The council also has a contract with Redcliffe Homes to deliver 11 affordable rented homes in Upavon, and these are due for completion later this summer. The council is also working with Redcliffe Homes to deliver 10 affordable rented homes at Rowden Brook, Chippenham, also during this summer.

The variety of affordable homes at each site will range from one-bed flats to four-bed houses. Each will be well built to a high specification and energy performance.

Cllr Phil Alford, Wiltshire Council Cabinet Member for Housing, said: "A key part of our Business Plan is to ensure we have the right housing that supports residents and their different needs and circumstances, with homes being as efficient as possible which is never more important than now in the face of the increased cost of living.   

"I was on-site some months ago and to see the progress and transformation for myself is fantastic, particularly in the knowledge that these homes will make such a positive difference to people's lives.

"The next, and most important, stage now is for people to move in so if anyone's interested I'd encourage them to get in touch so that we can hand over the keys to these safe, secure and high quality homes."

If people would like any further information about these affordable homes, they should contact Andrew M Mead, Residential Development Project Manager, at AndrewM.Mead@wiltshire.gov.uk.
