Council encourages downsizing
PUBLISHED: 07:00 13 March 2018
Three one-bedroom council-owned bungalows will be available to rent later this year, in conjunction with the council’s Holding Hands scheme, for those tenants wishing to downsize.
Cllr Anthony Pritchard, cabinet member for housing, said: “We are anticipating a lot of interest in these three bungalows and expect them to get allocated quickly – which is why registering your interest is really important at this stage.
“By encouraging those that want to move into a smaller home it can free up larger bedroomed properties for other larger families in housing need.”
The new bungalows are currently under construction on land to the rear of Packham Road, Northfleet, and are expected to be completed in November.
The bungalows feature private outdoor gardens and parking, flush floor showers, double glazed windows, gas central heating and vinyl flooring throughout.
There is also the added bonus of an amenity space in the loft area accessed via a traditional staircase.
If you are interested in registering to downsize visit www.gravesham.gov.uk/home/housing/council-tenants/downsizing-scheme/apply.
Once registered you’ll be able to find out more information and then should you wish to continue you’ll be able to bid on the properties on the Kent HomeChoice (Choice Based Lettings) during September.
