The health pandemic has affected progress on our building sites. We expect an approximate delay of up to 12 weeks to our programmed finishing dates. This is due to work stopping altogether for a time, then reduced working to comply with social distancing requirements. The council is also experiencing delays in obtaining materials to sites. We are working closely with our partner organisations to reduce delays as much as possible, and to keep to our planned programmes. We are keen to finish these new properties for people in need of affordable homes as soon as we possibly can.
