Borras start on first new council houses in Harlow for over 25 years

Borras recently began construction on 18 new homes in Harlow, the £2.3m scheme will see new council homes in Harlow for the first time in over 25 years.

The contract is part of Harlow Council’s Pathfinder Project, a scheme designed to transform disused and underutilised or cleared residential garage sites into high quality and sustainable homes to meet the demand for affordable rental homes in Harlow.

Sites at the Hill and Fesants Croft will both see 7 three bed houses constructed, with another 4 two bed homes provided at the Felmongers site.

Deputy leader of the council Tony Durcan said at the official breaking of the ground ceremony “This is a key moment for social housing in Harlow. It has been over 25 years since the last council house was built in Harlow. This programme will provide new high quality homes and also regenerate disused or under used garage sites making a positive, visible difference to Harlow.”

Our specialist Social Housing division began on site in December 2014, with completion due Summer 2015.
