Sutton Council starts work on new affordable homes

Groundbreaking work is underway as Sutton Council begins construction of the borough’s first new council houses in nearly 30 years.

The £28 million programme will see 93 new homes - over 90% of which will be affordable - built in Alcester Road, Wallington; Fellowes Road, Carshalton; and Richmond Green, Beddington.

Lib Dem Councillor Jayne McCoy, Chair of the Council’s housing committee, said: “This truly is a groundbreaking event. It’s been almost 30 years since the last council houses were built in the borough - not through lack of political will, but lack of funding opportunities.

“But now we can deliver, I am proud that we have secured high-quality design that will provide an excellent living environment for residents, enhance the local street scene, and maximise the number of affordable homes to rent.”

A mix of one, two and three-bedroomed homes, including ten that are wheelchair accessible, will be on offer.
