New properties are being built at a derelict site in Ramsgate as part of a £2.5 million redevelopment project to create affordable homes.
Work is well underway in Chichester Road, where old garages are being turned into two two-bed houses and one two bed bungalow.
Eleven other homes – two in Clements Road and nine in Lancaster Close and Kingston Close in Ramsgate – will also be built on empty sites which have become eyesores due to vandalism and fly-tipping.
The developments form part of phase two of Thanet council’s new build programme, which involves building on brownfield sites to create new social housing.
The scheme won funding from the Homes and Communities Agency to go towards 51 new homes across Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate.
