The Council today marked a ground-breaking ceremony with tenants at its Berwick Courts housing complex in St Albans, where three new units are being built.
A total of 25 new units are scheduled to open between October and December this year across three of the Council’s existing complexes in Richmond, St Albans and Addington. The Council also has plans to start work on a further 16 units before the end of the year.
Councillor Andrew Turner, Chair of the Communities, Housing and Economic Development Committee, says while the Council is building more social housing units, it is also raising the bar in terms of design and quality in the process.
