New homes on the way


Almost 100 new homes will be built by the States’ new housing company by the end of 2016, according to new figures.

Plans revealed by the States-owned Andium Homes show that they plan to build 95 homes, as well as refurbishing 91 units as they head towards their goal of ensuring that all social rented homes reach UK “Decent Homes Standards”.

The company took over the portfolio of the old Housing department earlier this year, and has been given a budget of millions of pounds to refurbish and build new homes.

Chief executive Ian Gallichan said: “We are pleased with the progress that has been made this year and this has been welcomed by the local construction industry, but also by residents who will move in to the homes on completion.

“We are all set for another busy year in 2015 and continue our work to bring our homes up to Decent Homes Standard.

“The development of new affordable homes is also of vital importance and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to develop an additional 30 units on our site at Andium Court, Langtry Gardens.”

The plans revealed by Andium show that five projects worth more than £20 million have been tendered, as they plan their work for next few years.

The projects are:

  • Refurbishing 32 high rise homes at De Quetteville Court by July
  • Building 44 new homes at the Lesquende 2 development on the Airport Road by April 2016
  • Building 21 new homes at Le Squez in St Clement by next December 
  • Refurbishing 39 units at Hampshire Gardens on Aquila Road by the second quarter of 2016
  • Refurbishing 20 homes at Nicolle Close on Clarendon Road by the end of 2016
  • Completing 30 homes at Langtry Gardens by February 2016.
