Around 70 homes in Doncaster will be purchased and refurbished this year to provide high quality, affordable council housing for local people – with a total of 241 homes planned for purchase over the next four years.

The scheme is led by St Leger Homes, who manage 20,000 properties on behalf of City of Doncaster Council.

A total of £34 million is being invested in the scheme, which will bring these properties back into use and help towards meeting the high demand for council homes in the city. They will all be finished to a high standard with modern facilities, providing comfortable, safe and secure homes.
