A new wheelchair accessible bungalow is one of 10 council homes set to arrive in Northfleet by the end of next year.

This month, council contractors Cablesheer will start work in Packham Road, Northfleet, to developer six two-bedroom houses, three one-bedroom bungalows and a two-bed bungalow with disabled access.

In July, the council granted approval for the site, with construction expected to finish in around a year.

A spokesperson from the council said: “The one-bedroom bungalows also have extra room in the roof area to encourage people to downsize allowing that little bit of extra space for a carer, family member or hobby room, for example.”

Cabinet member for housing, Anthony Pritchard, said: “We’re looking at every opportunity we can to deliver new homes in the borough. Whether that be new developments, our holding hands scheme or other initiatives like refurbishing empty properties.

“We’re not sitting back and waiting for housing associations and developers to increase the stock, we’re being really proactive and pushing forward to deliver more homes for more of our residents in housing need. And what we’re doing is matching everything we build against our housing list to ensure we’re meeting demand and, most importantly, delivering the types of properties needed.”
