More properties have now been completed as part of South Kesteven District Council’s £3 million council house building programme.

Two one-bedroom homes constructed on Thames Road, Grantham, are part of a two-year plan to create 33 new homes throughout the district.

Work has been carried out by Woodhead Construction and is the third site to be completed in recent weeks following four new homes at Egglestone House, in Sandon Road, and three properties at Marlstone Place, in East Avenue.

Both properties have achieved a high energy efficiency rating of A92 on their respective Energy Performance Certificates required with new homes, the first time SKDC have funded construction of properties within the A range.

Solar panels on the roof of the properties are among the features that will help assist in their heating and lighting.

Portfolio holder for good housing Councillor Terl Bryant said he was very impressed with the properties.

He said: “They have been completed to an exceptionally high standard and will provide excellent homes for tenants for generations to come.

“The extra energy efficiency rating will provide affordable warmth for residents. They truly meet Lifetime Homes standards and are suitable for tenants of any age.”

Lincoln Road in Stamford is among the next sites to benefit from this first phase of council house building.

Land being developed for the homes is council owned and consists of former housing and garage sites which have already been cleared of buildings.

Designs include one, two, three and four bedroom flats, houses and bungalows to go into the council’s housing stock.
