Stag House Ground Breaking Ceremony

Leader of the Council, Ravi Govindia CBE, made this speech at the Stag House groundbreaking ceremony:

“This is a demonstration of our commitment to build new homes which meet the diverse needs of our residents. Good quality housing is fundamental in supporting the wellbeing of our residents and we’re delighted to be partnering with Wates Residential on this scheme. I am also proud that this scheme is the first Council build supported housing scheme for our more vulnerable residents which will give those with learning and physical disabilities the opportunity to live safely in a scheme built to the highest standards. I would like to thank the local residents association, chaired by Shirley Price, and Cllr Jane Cooper for identifying this and I believe another development opportunity on the estate and their positive contributions and understanding as this development has been taken forward.”

The Stag House development will comprise 21 new homes. This will include eight new homes for low cost rent and 13 which will be adapted to support some of the borough’s more vulnerable residents with physical and learning difficulties to live independently.”
