This year marks 100 years since the Addison Act was passed, which opened the door to council housing. The act, which helped to finance 500,000 houses within three years, was introduced after the First World War in an effort to rebuild. To celebrate the milestone, our Housing Officers Nicola Gott and Scott Matthews visited our 100 year homes to deliver flowers and chat to tenants. There are 15 in total on Chapel Street, Keadby, Smith Street, Scunthorpe and Sheffield Street, Scunthorpe.more...
