Slough Labour promised to deliver 200 new council homes in the 2 year period following the 2014 local elections and we are proud to say that we have exceed that target by delivering 264 new council homes the Slough residents.
Labour has transformed Slough as a planning authority and a as a house building authority in its own right. This latest development, at our Milestone site on Ledgers Road, will see a further 70 plus units created, including 24 social homes and sits alongside the 264 new council homes we have built and the 1,000 homes of all tenures under construction at sites across Slough.
There is huge potential across Slough to build the homes we need for local people who live and work here and through our regeneration partnership we hope to continue to provide the high quality, affordable homes our residents want which will only enhance what Slough already has to offer.
Cllr James Swindlehurst said "Both as a planning authority and increasingly now as a builder in our own right, the council is committed to providing more affordable homes for local people, despite the challenging lack of space to build in the borough.
"We have built 264 new homes in the past year alone, and 1,000 more are currently under construction - including the new homes at Milestone and at Castleview in Upton.
“We have also launched a 'call for sites' to work with residents to identify land where a change of use could supply new housing.
“The Milestone development at Ledgers Road is significant because it is the first residential development to be built by our regeneration partnership - Slough Urban Renewal.
"It is exciting to finally see our political commitment being turned into real bricks and mortar - and I look forward to seeing the finished homes.”
