New social homes in north Somerstown 


Construction of new social housing at Blackfriars Close has commenced

Work has started on new social housing in north Somerstown after planning permission was granted last October. 

Portsmouth City Council will build 51 flats and nine houses, ranging from one to four bedrooms, on the Somerstown Health Centre site, in Blackfriars Close.
These new homes should help ease housing problems for people in Portsmouth at a time when there’s huge demand for good quality housing in the city.
The development, designed by architects Re-Format, have been approved after consultation with local residents, stakeholders and community groups.
Contractors PMC hope to complete the flats in Wellington Street before the end of 2016.
