Work underway on new homes sites in Lee Chapel North and Billericay.
Sempra Homes, the council’s house building company has started work to build new homes in Basildon and Billericay. The new homes at the Space site, in Long Lynderswood, include a development of 20 two-bedroom shared ownership apartments along with car and cycle parking and associated landscaping. The homes are being built by Wickford-based company, Indecon Building.
They will be marketed specifically to local key workers like teachers, nurses and police officers. The site was recently visited by Leader of Basildon Council, Andrew Baggott and Chairman of the Housing Committee, Cllr Don Morris.
The councillors also attended Roman Way in Billericay where 15 semi-detached and terraced two-storey houses will be built by Sempra Homes. The properties will be a combination of two, three and four-bedroom houses. In total, three of the homes will be available for affordable rent with six available for shared ownership and six for market sale.
Cllr Andrew Baggott, leader of Basildon Council, said: “Sempra was set up with the aim of building high-quality and affordable homes for our residents. We are now seeing this ambition being realised as numerous schemes across the borough progress. It is also fantastic to see these homes being built by Wickford-based company, Indecon Building Ltd, which has pledged to offer work experience to pupils from Billericay School.”
