Kingston makes bid for new build housing

At last night’s meeting of the Executive, Cllr Penny Shelton announced the Administration has put in a bid for new build affordable housing in the Borough.

The Executive Member for Housing said: “I am delighted to say that the Council has submitted a bid to the Homes and Communities Agency to build 8 new, affordable houses on the site of Yew Tree House in Old Malden.

“This funding involved is part of the Housing Stimulus package announced by the Chancellor in the 2009 Budget and follows a recognition by the Government that local authorities should become more directly involved again in providing new affordable homes.”

She added: “We will hear early in the new year if the bid has been successful. If it is, these will be the first new homes built by the Council since 1993.”
