NEW homes for an affordable rent have been officially opened in Yate.

The 24 houses and flats in Kelston Close were developed by local housing association Solon, which part-funded them with the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency on land provided by South Gloucestershire Council. 

Paul Ville, Solon’s chief executive, thanked the council for its support and patience during complex negotiations to save the scheme when the original developer pulled out.

He said: “The eventual completion of these much needed affordable homes for local families is largely thanks to this.”
