More Council Housing to be Built in Ealing
Funding secured for eight new family homes
More council homes will be built in Ealing after the council won additional funding to help ease its housing waiting list.
Ealing Council has secured £716,000 funding from the Homes and Communities Agency to put towards building eight new family homes. The council is also contributing £572,000 towards the project.
The plans are for six three bedroom and two four bedroom houses. Dabbs Hill Lane in Northolt has already been identified as a possible site, but the plans are subject to local consultation and the council will need to apply for planning permission.
The properties are in addition to the 68 new homes given the go ahead last September after the council agreed to invest £5.5million in the project, to match the funding it secured from the Homes and Communities Agency.
The council is also in the process of finding developers for the schemes and is expecting to award a contract for the work in March 2010.
Most of the new properties will be larger homes, suitable for families.
