Anthorn Rd Development

Cllr Clive Morgan visited Anthorn Rd to see for himself the construction of 20 bungalows for older people, part of a £14 million investment by your Labour Council.

The site has undergone clearance work and the first bricks have now been laid. The bungalows, will support the delivery of your council's approach to social care by enabling residents to live longer and healthier lives in their own homes and reduce the demand and costs on care services and on hospitals.

Clive said, "Current population trends demonstrate that we need more housing of this type in local communities to help provide homes that can assist people to live independently in their own homes."

"It is also good news because it brings back into use a brownfield site that has been an eyesore for far too long."

"I look forward to welcoming the first residents to this much needed development."

The homes will be let on affordable rents to those on the housing register with options for shared ownership or owner occupation.
