Spelthorne Borough Council has announced the completion of two one-bedroom and six two-bedroom apartments in Upper Halliford.
Located on Upper Halliford Road, on the site previously occupied by the Bugle Returns public house, the properties have been built by the Council to provide affordable private rented accommodation for local residents. The homes are energy efficient and built to a high spec with car parking and electric car charging points.
This new development, known as Bugle House, forms part of Spelthorne’s ambitious housing delivery programme which aims to deliver 600 new properties in the next five years.
Spelthorne’s Council Leader, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Housing met with some of the new tenants on Thursday 7 March to welcome them to their new homes and hand over the keys.
Cllr Mark Francis, Spelthorne’s Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “These are fantastic apartments and I hope our new tenants will be very happy in their new homes. Spelthorne is committed to increasing the availability of good quality affordable housing in the Borough and we look forward to delivering more schemes like this in the near future.”
Cllr Ian Harvey, Leader of the Council, said: At a time when many councils have been cutting services to survive austerity, Spelthorne has pursued a strategy of investing in commercial properties to generate a secure income. I am pleased to say this strategy is now paying dividends and enabling us to deliver new homes like these apartments in Upper Halliford, for local people.”
