Since September 2015, 28 households have settled into new housing in the Lesley Keast Place neighbourhood in Hornby.

Five different housing providers are involved in producing a mix of housing ranging from one-bedroom studio apartments to four-bedroom family homes.

Construction of the last 16 houses is due to commence in October 2016.

Housing Foundation still needs families for the last two affordable equity (shared ownership) houses in this new neighbourhood adjacent to the Hornby Shopping Centre.

If you are ready to move on from renting and onto the pathway to home ownership, please register your interest.
