Homes for key workers
New apartments will soon be available for key workers at a shared ownership housing development in the centre of Basildon.
Sempra Homes, Basildon Council’s house building company, began work on the disused SPACE youth centre site in Long Lynderswood last summer.
The homes, due to be completed next month, will be available to key workers such as teachers, nurses, police officers, and members of the ambulance and fire services.
This scheme includes 20 two-bedroom shared ownership apartments offering car parking and bicycle stands.
The development will be known as Maplewood Court and is close to both the heart of the town centre and Basildon Hospital.
