Council homes in Swavesey to be handed over to new tenants

12 May 2016

A celebration has taken place to mark the completion of 20 new much-needed Council houses in Swavesey.

Work began on the homes on the edge of the village, near Moat Way, last summer with them completed ahead of schedule so new tenants could move in.

The new Council properties were made available to people who grew up and still live in the village as well as people who have a local connection to Swavesey. All the homes have been allocated.

New tenants will begin to move in at the end of the week.

The new development follows four homes South Cambridgeshire District Council built in Linton recently. Work is also underway to build 15 new council homes in Foxton.

Cllr Sue Ellington, Chairman of South Cambridgeshire District Council and local member for Swavesey, said: “I’m delighted to be able mark the completion of these new homes which will be a great asset for Swavesey. Handing over the keys to people who grew up in the village or have close family links will be wonderful and they will help meet the needs locally for affordable rented homes.

“Congratulations to the builders for getting the homes completed ahead of schedule.”
