A young mum of three from Battersea is delighted to be moving into a 3-bedroom house with her three children in the coming weeks.
Shereena Miller is one of six families who will be moving into a brand-new home in Rowditch Lane identified for the re-housing of residents from the first phase of the Winstanley and York Road regeneration scheme.
Shereena, 32, said: “I had been living in a block of flats on the York Road Estate for the last seven years with my three children. Our flat was old and whenever we would try and fix something inside it would fall apart. This new home has really given us an opportunity to start a fresh. There is a lot of space for the kids to play, I have my own little garden and a driveway to park my car. It is perfect for us.”
These new homes form part of Wandsworth's 1,000 homes programme – a council led housing development project to build new homes right across the borough providing greater housing choice for the people of Wandsworth.
Helping residents meet their housing aspirations is at the heart of the council's new Housing and Homelessness Strategy and more residents will be moving into their new homes over the coming months.
