Opening doors for key workers

Twenty-two brand new key worker apartments at the new Peach Place development in Wokingham town centre are nearly ready to welcome their new occupants.


The one and two bedroom flats, from our local housing company Berry Brook Homes, will be available early next year to key workers who either live or work in the Wokingham Borough.


Rents will be up to 80 per cent of market values.


Key workers are public sector employees who provide an essential service. This includes the NHS, education, police, prison service, probation service, local government, the Ministry of Defence, environmental health officers, and Highways Agency traffic officers.


The Peach Place apartments will be allocated through our Housing Needs team, which will examine your employment and circumstances to see if you are eligible.


Other housing associations and private developers, in addition to Berry Brook Homes, can offer key worker housing across the Wokingham Borough. As the allocations for all of these sit with us, you should always register your interest with us if you want to be considered for one.
