The London Borough of Sutton has completed its first programme of new council house building for 30 years.
In total, Sutton has built 93 new homes – 15 houses were finished in October last year, and now 21 new houses and 57 new flats are ready for people to move in. This building programme was possible because of changes in financial regulations allowing councils to borrow to build council housing.
Sutton’s new council homes are on three sites across the borough:
- Fellowes Road, Carshalton – 15 houses completed in October 2018
- Alcester Road, Wallington – 57 flats completed in August 2019
- Richmond Green, Beddington – 21 houses and completed in August 2019
Fellowes Road is already fully occupied, and tenants are now moving into the remaining newly-completed properties.
