NINE newly-built council homes have been completed in Barnsley.

One four-bed house, six three beds and two two beds on Saville Road, Gilroyd, are owned by Barnsley Council and managed by Berneslai Homes.

All the homes have been built to high standards, having air source heating systems and solar panels. Built by Saul Construction, the scheme employed four apprentices.

Coun Roy Miller, cabinet spokesperson for place, said: "We're delighted to see these new homes completed, ready for tenants to move in and enjoy.

"They're the kind of new homes we will continue to build in Barnsley as part of the council's new housing strategy."

Tenants are expected to move in shortly.
