Work has been completed on refurbishing temporary accommodation flats at Pendeen Court in Cippenham Meadow.

The two-storey building, which is now around 30 years old, needed modernisation. Flats were given a facelift with new kitchens, bathrooms, high security front doors and internal doors, windows and electrical re-wiring.

Communal areas in the building also benefited from the upgrade with the provision of new key-less secure door entrance systems, new windows, CCTV, replacement of rainwater goods and removal of graffiti.

The works were managed by Slough Borough Council’s in-house Property Services Team in conjunction with James Elliman Homes and R. Benson.

Cllr Mohammed Nazir, cabinet member for housing and finance, said: “I am delighted the refurbishment works at Pendeen Court are complete, this upgrade will make a huge difference to the individuals and families who are housed here, sometimes under difficult circumstances.

“At the council we are committed to ensuring our facilities and community buildings meet modern standards, which is why we are continuing to invest resources across the borough to make this happen.”
