37 affordable homes will soon be available in Ripley for Guildford families.
Marlborough Place, which is built on the former White Hart Court site, includes a mixture of homes for rent to those on the Council’s housing register and others available under a shared ownership (part-buy part-rent) scheme.
The first homes have just been released and new tenants are moving in. The rented homes will be all be let by December.
A public car park with 60 spaces has also been completed as part of the development.
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.”
