New homes for those on St Albans district council housing waiting list
A £3.2 million project that will see the refurbishment of a block of flats in to new council homes will take place later this year at Mereden Court site in Tavistock Avenue – Planning permission to redesign the site in to 18 new homes has been given the green light which will bring a satisfying smile to the face of people on the St Albans district council (SADC) housing waiting list.
The project details that 14 one bedroom and 4 two bedroom properties will be built. Cllr Brian Ellis, was reported as saying that “Mereden Court will provide affordable council homes of excellent quality to a range of people on our Housing Register.
This accommodation could attract tenants looking to downsize from larger council homes, releasing those properties for families on the register.
The redevelopment of the site as well as other sheltered housing blocks shows the strength of our commitment to delivering new modern homes for people in the district who are in housing need.”
