Tenants will soon be occupying brand new South Holland District Council houses.
The four two-bedroom properties in Surfleet have just been completed by Weston Hills developer Broadgate Homes.
Coun Christine Lawton, portfolio holder for housing landlord, and ward councillors Liz Sneath and Sally-Ann Slade joined district council housing landlord manager Richard Scorthorne at the handover of the homes on Monday.
Coun Lawton said: “I’m very impressed with the houses. They have a very useful layout and plentiful space outside.
“They will be a very welcome addition to our housing stock and we look forward to tenants being able to enjoy living in them.”
The semi-detached properties are in a cul-de-sac off Coalbeach Lane South, called Pinkthorn Close. The name Pinkthorn has historical links to the site.
Broadgate Homes chief executive Ian Canham joined contracts manager John Crunkhorn to hand over the keys to the properties after completion of the 26-week project.
He said: “We are grateful to the district council to have been given the opportunity to build these properties and wish the future tenants every happiness in their new homes.”
Local builders are due to complete more semi-detached two-bedroom council houses soon, including six properties in Wrights Lane, Sutton Bridge, four in Millfield Gardens, Crowland, four in Puddingpoke Lane, Lutton, and two in Broadgate, Whaplode Drove – the district council’s fifth recent new build scheme.
