Conisborough Housing Association Building Project

At present there is a good deal of building activity. Progress is being made with the second thirty Council houses on the Daylands side, whilst work has been commenced on the immense project of the Conisborough Housing Association, which is to give us four or five hundred  additional houses.

Last week a bungalow of original design was commenced on a side on Park Road, with an aspect which provides a magnificent view over miles of country towards Clifton. This last has been approved by the Council to quality for the subsidy under the Housing Act 1923.

I believe that this bungalow is the only one of the six chances offered to be accepted up to date, so would-be applicants will have to get a move on, as the time limit for construction expires next year.

A decided asset to building under this scheme is the advice which the Council Surveyor, Mr. H Thirlwall, is ready to give. He will offer suggestions before the drawing of the plans, and he supervises the construction of the building, all materials having to satisfy his conditions and inspection.
