Dartford Borough Council Leader, Jeremy Kite, officially opened six new homes in Littlebrook Manor Way this week which were delivered by The Hyde Group.
The Council Leader cut the ribbon alongside Hyde’s Development Director David Gannicott. The brand new homes were built on land purchased from Dartford Council and used to deliver much needed affordable new homes as part of the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) funded affordable rent tenure programme.
The new homes are a mixture of one and two bedroom houses and flats, according to the identified local housing need. The development also includes a specially adapted wheelchair user flat for three persons, which was designed in close partnership with Kent County Council.
Speaking at the event Hyde Group Development Director, David Gannicott said: “We are pleased to officially open these new homes in Dartford, which have been funded by HCA grant and will be affordable rent in line with local housing need.”
“Hyde is committed to delivering more affordable homes in Kent and the South East to help meet the massive demand for housing and we work innovatively to reinvest our surpluses into providing new homes and making a lasting difference.”
Councillor Jeremy Kite, Leader of Dartford Borough Council, said, "Providing new homes for people on our housing list is the backbone of future communities and it's wonderful to meet real families who are starting new lives in these homes."
The event was also attended by the new Mayor of Dartford Avtar Sandhu and Councillor Pat Coleman, Cabinet Member for Housing.
