Shared ownership homes snapped up
Ten shared ownership homes in a development led by Sempra Homes – a commercial arm of Basildon Council – have been reserved by local residents and key workers.
The two four-bed and eight two-bed homes are located in Sellars Way on the new St Nicholas Mews scheme off Ballards Walk and were developed by Redrow for Sempra. They were marketed to borough residents and key workers such as teachers, ambulance workers, firefighters, nurses and police officers.
Seven have been reserved by residents who have lived in the borough for more than five years and three taken by key workers.
Basildon Council’s chairman of the housing committee, Don Morris, said: “These are stunning family homes and represent a great opportunity for borough residents and key workers to get on the property ladder in an affordable way, through the shared ownership scheme.”
