New council homes being built at the site of a former car park are developing quickly.

The seven new homes in South Street, Lancing, are in the process of being constructed.

There will be four one-bed and three two-bed properties in total.

Adur District Council said these homes will be given to people who would otherwise be homeless.

The contractors are building these new homes using modern methods.

This means the frames of the buildings are made in a factory and then transported to the site to be assembled.

A spokesman for the council said: "Our contractors are constructing the frames of the buildings in a factory. They then transport them by lorry and assemble them on-site - meaning less disruption for those living nearby, less waste and quicker construction.

"The new houses will be well insulated, energy efficient and cheaper to run for the tenants."

The homes are expected to be complete by January next year.

This project is part of council plans to replace old and underused garage compounds with extra homes that families in the district need.

These are being built across Sompting, Lancing, Shoreham, Southwick and Fishersgate.
