Great connection for Great Glen

05 February 2015

We are always looking for ways to support our residents and their local communities, so were pleased to be able to help Great Glen Parish Council provide internet access to local people by donating a laptop computer. It is now available in the Parish Council office on Church Road for anyone who lives in the village to use.

Over the past two and a half years, we have built 34 new affordable homes for local people in Great Glen by working in partnership with the local district and parish councils. A further 38 new homes - for rent and to buy through shared ownership - are being built from now until 2017.

The computer is just part of a package of support on offer at the Parish Council offices, which is open is open 1pm – 5pm on Monday and 9.30am - 1.30pm on Thursday and Friday.

Starting this month, Waterloo’s area housing officer will hold monthly surgeries at different times and the neighbourhood policing team will attend the surgeries whenever possible.

Cindy Andrews, Chair of the Great Glen Parish Council, said: “This demonstrates the good working relationship between the Parish Council, the police and Waterloo Housing Group. On behalf of the Parish Council, I’d like to thank Waterloo for donating the computer and making it possible to offer this facility to the residents of Great Glen.”

New houses to part-buy and part-rent through shared ownership are currently available at Stretton Glen in Great Glen, with prices starting from £48,750 for a 25% share. Visit www.waterloohomes.org.uk to find out more.

The next new rented homes in Great Glen are due to be ready this summer. Local people interested in applying should register now with Harborough District Council’s choice-based lettings scheme Harborough Home Search.
