Delivering social housing for Slough residents

SUR's small sites strategy has transformed 24 disused small sites, such as old garages, run down properties, and parcels of land across the borough into 108 attractive homes for people in need of social housing.


The small sites initiative has comprised a four stage approach.

Phase 1: Six new council homes across four sites (Bryant Avenue / Mansell Close / The Frith / The Cherries). All works were completed, and the homes handed over to the Council in Aug/Sept 2017.

Lydia Court: A development of 11 Council flats (one, two and three bed). Completed in October 2017.

Phase 2: The development of five car park infill sites including a former public house called the Lynchpin pub to provide 16 new affordable homes for SBC Housing. Completed November 2018.
