First Tenants Move into Newly Built Council Homes

The first three homes the Council has built in over 20 years are now complete and will be occupied by tenants this month (February). The three homes are at Holborough Close, Greenstead, and are the first of 34 new homes to be completed across the borough.

The building of the new homes was made possible due to the transformation of five Council owned garage sites, which were identified as suitable for development. The other sites are at Monkwick Avenue, Windsor Close and Rosabelle Avenue in Wivenhoe.

The new homes will be managed by Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) on behalf of the Council.

Greg Falvey, our Chief Executive said "This is a very special moment and I'm very proud that we can offer some new quality and decent homes to the people who need them. I hope these new homes give our tenants many years of happiness".
