Gorrick Square

Work is due to commence on this three bedroom, purpose built, detatched bungalow in early 2019. This scheme has been designed in partnership with Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) to meet the specific needs of three individuals with specilist care requirements.

Gorrick Square is a great example of Wokingham Housing (WHL) building homes to fit specific need in the Borough.

The new bungalow is to be built on unused Council land and benefits from a £135,000 specilist housing for rent grant under the Homes England Shared Ownership and Affordable Rent Programme 2016-2021.
