We are building 35 new council homes on land we already own beside Compton House and Sarum House on Blackwater Drive in Totton. Nine two bedroom and 26 one bedroom flats, in two blocks, are expected to be complete at the end of 2018. 76 car parking spaces, attractive landscaping designed to provide informal play opportunities for young children, and new bike and bin stores are also included in the project.  

Updates on the progress of the build will be posted here.

Councillor Jill Cleary, the council's portfolio holder for housing and communities, marked the start of work on site on 22 August with a 'ground-breaking ceremony' with main contractor Brymor Construction Ltd. She said:

"I'm very happy to be witnessing the start of another project by the council addressing the need for affordable homes" she said. "Tenants have recently moved into new council homes in New Milton and, by the end of 2018, tenants will be settling into much-needed new homes here in Totton. We are investing our housing revenue in new homes, adding to our housing stock and making use of land we already own."Councillor Jill Cleary on site of new homes

Councillor Cleary, along with Councillor Neville Penman and Councillor Arthur Davies, district and town councillors for Totton, were shown around the site by Craig Durman, head of housing for Brymor Construction Ltd.

The project is being fully-funded by the council and is the largest new build project we have embarked on in around 25 years.

When complete the new homes will be offered to residents on the council's Homesearch register.
