Gillingham Garages

New homes back on track

Date: 15 May 2018

Work is back on track in Gillingham and Marnhull, as Sovereign Housing’s new development partner Parsons & Joyce Contractors pick up construction on 20 new affordable homes.

Work halted on the developments - spread over sites in Gillingham and Marnhull - in summer 2017, causing frustration to local residents in need of housing. But now it is hoped that the first homes will be available by Autumn 2018.

Rosie Matthews, Project Manager for Sovereign, said: “While this project got off to a slow start, it’s great that we’re moving forward now, creating four flats, two houses and 11 bungalows from former garage blocks in Gillingham - and a further three houses on disused land in Marnhull. These houses will all be available for affordable rent, reinforcing Sovereign’s commitment to helping people in need.”

Corner Close will be ready for its first occupants in the autumn, with Gillingham completing in mid-2019.
