New council homes have been built on the site of a former garage.

Adur District Council has completed work on six homes in Sompting which will house people on its waiting list.

The properties, built in the former garage compound between Sylvan Road and Avon Close, are four two-bedroom houses and two one-bedroom bungalows.

Each property has a parking spot, an electric charging point and garden.

The homes are part of the council's plans to redevelop old garage compounds and under-used sites to provide much-needed homes in Sompting, Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick and Fishersgate.

Air source heat pumps have been installed in the homes so that residents can use renewable energy.

The development has also created 17 additional parking spaces for the community.

Councillor Carson Albury, cabinet member responsible for Adur Homes and customer services, said: "These new homes are absolutely fabulous.

"We've been able to help six more families to get not just a home but a home they'll love.

"We're continuing to help Adur residents on our waiting list to get the homes they need."

The council is building more homes in Fishersgate, Shoreham and Southwick.
