Hill and Reading Council celebrate as work begins at Conwy Close!
We were excited to hold a groundbreaking ceremony at Conwy Close in Reading this week, as we started work on the construction of 57 new council homes for Reading Council.
As part of the largest house building project in its current phase of construction works for the Council, the new scheme will include 12 one-bed apartments, 22 two-bed apartments, 9 two-bed houses, 6 three-bed houses and 8 four-bed houses, reflecting the housing need identified on Reading Council’s housing register.
The properties will be in keeping with the surrounding area, with traditional red-brick exteriors, beautiful landscaped frontages and communal areas with newly planted trees, ornamental planting and open spaces with play areas.
I am thrilled to see this major Council house building project get under way. There is a huge demand for affordable accommodation in Reading and this scheme will go some way towards meeting that need. This project will provide good quality homes close to local amenities and with good transport links to the town centre and employment hubs. I look forward to welcoming the first families into Conwy Close next year.
We are delighted to be working with Reading Council to deliver these homes for the benefit of local families. Councils are increasingly needing to be more creative in order to provide housing and other local amenities and we’re currently partnering with a number of councils including Reading, Ealing and Oxford to help them better utilise land and other resources at their disposal. By pooling resources, talent, skills and knowledge, these local authorities are unlocking a number of previously untapped opportunities and increasing housing production within their areas.
