ELEVEN new houses in Hurst were opened for social renting last week.

The houses in Tape Lane, Hurst are the first traditional council housing of its kind to be built in over 20 years.

The development includes two and three-bedroom houses and one four-bedroom bungalow. 

The homes have been built in partnership with the council-owned development company Wokingham Housing (WHL) and contractor, Life Build Solutions, on behalf of the council’s housing department.

The Borough Council say they built them as part of their ongoing commitment to provide genuinely affordable places for people to live.

 “It was a privilege to view our newly constructed council houses and to meet local residents,” said Mayor of Wokingham Borough, Cllr Bill Soane. “These new social rent homes are a welcome addition in the borough and will be let to those on the housing register.”
