Local housing provider, Grand Union Housing Group (GUHG), has transformed a former garage site in Sandy into three family homes.

The Cambridge Road site, which is made up of two 2 bedroom homes and one 3 bedroom home, used to be made up of a number of garages which attracted antisocial behaviour.

But after identifying it as potential site for redevelopment, GUHG have transformed it into much needed affordable housing for local people.

Dave Lakin, Head of New Business and Development, said: “This site provided us with the opportunity to both provide local families with a home, while at the same time, removing a site where antisocial behaviour had been reported.

“With the need for housing at an all-time high, Grand Union is heeding the call by doubling its development programme this year.”

The site, which was originally not large enough for all three homes, was expanded after two GUHG tenants living adjacent to the site agreed to releasing garden land.
