NEARLY 300 new affordable homes could be built in Portsmouth if a council venture is successful.

At a cabinet meeting yesterday (Oct 9) it was revealed that a bid had been submitted by the council to build an additional 200 affordable dwellings, on top of the original 95 that councillors approved at the same meeting.

As a result of the meeting five council sites, deemed the most under-used in the city, will be redeveloped into housing including 95 affordable homes and 135 private.

Speaking about proposals for the 95 homes housing boss, Cllr Darren Sanders, said: ‘It is not just this we are doing. We have bid for another 200 affordable homes on council land.’
