New homes at Siren House help meet our social housing need

Twelve new flats at Siren House on Ladymead in central Guildford have welcomed their first tenants, as part of our ongoing commitment to build more homes to meet the needs of our social housing tenants.

We have an active development programme with a number of sites in progress, or under consideration, for new social housing across the borough, from Westborough to Guildford Park Road in the town centre.

Cllr Angela Goodwin, Lead Councillor for Housing, Homelessness, Access and Disability says: "It's fantastic to see more new homes completed for local people as part of our ambitious social housing programme. In the last four years we have invested over £21 million and delivered 128 new homes for our local residents. Many people think of Guildford as an affluent area but we have nearly 2,500 people on our housing register looking for a permanent home."

The new homes at Siren House have also been awarded the 'Secured by Design Gold Award' from Surrey Police, which recognises the excellent security measures included as part of the building design.
