Sempra Homes has started work to build new homes in Basildon and Billericay.
Leader of Basildon Council, Andrew Baggott and Chairman of the Housing Committee for Basildon Council, Cllr Don Morris attended the sites in Long Lynderswood, Lee Chapel North and Roman Way, Billericay, on Wednesday 18 July.
The new homes at the Space site, in Long Lynderswood, include a development of 20 two-bedroom shared ownership apartments along with car and cycle parking and associated landscaping.
They will be marketed specifically to local key workers like teachers, nurses and police officers.
The councillors also attended Roman Way in Billericay where 15 semi-detached and terraced two-storey houses will be built.
The properties will be a combination of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
In total, three of the homes will be available for affordable rent with six available for shared ownership and six for market sale.
A new road providing access to the properties from neighbouring School Road is included in the development alongside 31 car parking spaces, 30 cycle spaces and two coach spaces for use by neighbouring Billericay School.
Sempra Homes brought forward the proposals in close liaison with the school, which supports the development.
Cllr Andrew Baggott, leader of Basildon Council, said: “Sempra was set up with the aim of building high-quality and affordable homes for our residents.
“We are now seeing this ambition being realised as numerous schemes across the borough progress. It is also fantastic to see these homes being built by Wickford-based company, Indecon Building Ltd, which has pledged to offer work experience to pupils from Billericay School.”
