A new housing development has been officially opened by Dartford council leader Jeremy Kite.
He cut the ribbon to six new homes in Littlebrook Manor Way, built by The Hyde Group, alongside development director David Gannicott.
The new homes were built on land purchased from Dartford council and used to provide affordable new homes as part of the Housing Corporation Association’s (HCA) affordable rent tenure programme.
The new homes are a mixture of one- and two-bedroom houses and flats. The development also includes a specially adapted wheelchair user flat for three people.
Mr Gannicott said: “We are pleased to officially open these new homes in Dartford, which have been funded by HCA grant and will be affordable rent in line with local housing need.
“Hyde is committed to delivering more affordable homes in Kent and the South East to help meet the massive demand for housing and we work innovatively to reinvest our surpluses into providing new homes and making a lasting difference.”
Cllr Kite said: “Providing new homes for people on our housing list is the backbone of future communities and it’s wonderful to meet real families who are starting new lives in these homes.”
The event was also attended by the new mayor of Dartford Avtar Sandhu and Cllr Pat Coleman, cabinet member for Housing.
