Clacton to get its first new council homes in 30 years

First published in News

PLANS are in the pipeline for the first new council houses in Clacton for 30 years.

Tendring Council wants to buy four four-bedroom houses to provide extra homes for local families.

The authority has set aside £1million to buy or build properties over the next two years.

Housing boss Paul Honeywood said: “There is a definite need for four-bedroom houses within the Clacton area and these properties fit the bill.”

Six flats have already been bought in Walton, two houses are being built in Brightlingsea and a derelict house in Clacton is being turned into a family home.

Tendring currently has more than 3,200 council homes.
