Cllr Sarah Creedy, Lead Councillor for Housing and Social Welfare comments: “It is very exciting to see at first hand this development providing much needed affordable housing in Ripley.”

“I was delighted to meet a family of four who had at last been able to move out of their one-bedroom flat to this new home.”

“This site is part of our wider plans to meet the clear need for affordable housing in our borough, through a number of developments already underway.”
