A disused council garage site has been given a new lease of life with four affordable homes put in its place.
Last week saw the grand opening of four Wheathampstead maisonettes, built by Hightown Praetorian & Churches Housing Association and let by the council.
The former council garage site made space for four two-bedroom properties that provide vital affordable housing in the area.
Mayor of St Albans, Annie Brewster, was there to open the site, which has been in planning for years. She said: “We spend a great deal of time planning for these homes to be built so it is lovely to finally meet the people living in them.
“It’s fantastic what can be achieved on these former garage sites and I would like to congratulate everyone concerned in the project.”
