We have an ambitious house building programme, designed to deliver much needed homes to Stevenage residents.

Take a look at some of the projects that are on site and upcoming projects too.

Onsite project updates

Addison House, Shephall Way

Addison House, Shephall Way

About the site

The Addison House scheme is for a total of nine properties, a mix of one and two bed apartments which will be entirely for Council rent. The scheme started on site in October 2019, and is due to complete in March 2021.

The completed building will be named after Christopher Addison who started the first programme of publicly funded local authority housing schemes.

In 2019, we celebrated 100 years of social housing and the centenary of the Addison Act 1919. To celebrate the occasion, we planted a time capsule on site. Included within the capsule were drawings from pupils from Peartree Spring Primary School and Featherstone Wood Primary School. Their students took part in an art competition to draw what they thought housing would look like in 100 years’ time. The Winning entries were included in the time capsule.

Progress on Site

Work is progressing on site at the former Doctor’s surgery on Shephall Way, with the remaining kitchens and bathrooms being fitted out. The external blockwork is now being laid on site for the access and parking. All utilities have now been connected, with only final decorations left to be completed internally.

Symonds Green

Symonds Green apartments

Progress on Site

Work at the former location of Symonds Green Community Centre annexe along Scarborough Avenue is continuing, with the basement structure completed and work progressing to first floor. Enhanced insulation has been installed within the cavities of the building to ensure future performance.

The current forecast is for work to be completed in October 2021. Once finished the development will provide 100% social rent accommodation across 29 apartments, consisting of one, two and three bedrooms.

Progress on Site

The work at the former residential home at North Road is progressing well, with the brick and block work now at the second level ready for the final slab to be installed.

Once complete the development will provide 21 one and two bedroom apartments for private sale.
