Milton Keynes Council is set to purchase 70 modular homes to be built in Fishermead to house homeless families.
The 70 two-bedroom modular homes will be used to temporarily house homeless families while the council works with them to find a more permanent solution. It is expected that families could live in the properties for up to two years, during which they will have access to support services to access new and better opportunities for training and work.
Initially, the Council expected to lease the properties from a private company but has now decided to buy the homes outright. The decision will deliver better value for money for the council and supports its policy of keeping families together locally in MK. People will be given two-year fixed tenancies to allow them enough time to get back on their feet.
