New Homes for Basildon Borough Residents and Key Workers

Story posted: 08/03/2022

The first phase of 6 homes were recently completed and handed over to Sempra Homes at the Woodside Place development. The homes consisted of four 3-bedroom houses for shared ownership and two 2-bedroom houses for affordable rent and were built in partnership with Chelmsford based developer Stonebond. A further seven homes are due to handover in summer 2022.

Melanie Keys, Manager of Sempra Homes, said: “We are proud to bring these homes to the market, in partnership with Stonebond and Basildon Borough Council. The new homes have been let to Basildon residents from the Council’s Homeseekers register and all of the shared ownership homes have been sold to borough residents and borough keyworkers. We look forward to welcoming the residents to their homes.”

Cllr Andrew Schrader, Chairman of Basildon Council’s Housing and Estate Renewal Committee, said: “We are committed to building and acquiring more houses to help more people from Basildon get into high quality homes in our borough. Through Sempra Homes, we are acquiring and building properties with different tenure options to give local people more choice.”

Cllr Jeff Henry, representing Basildon Council’s Housing and Estate Renewal Committee as Cllr Shrader was unable to attend, joined Sempra Homes for the handover of the new homes. He added: “The new homes are of a fantastic quality and I am delighted they have been made available exclusively for borough residents.”

Robert Wilkinson, Managing Director of Stonebond Chelmsford, said: “We’re pleased to hand over these new, high-quality affordable homes to Sempra, providing much needed homes for Basildon residents and giving local people a real opportunity to get onto the housing ladder. As part of our mixed-tenure approach, we’re increasingly working with partners like Sempra and other Registered Providers to build more affordable homes in the areas they’re needed most.”
