A project to build four new affordable homes near Scunthorpe town centre has been completed, with the properties now ready to let.
The one-bedroom houses are owned and managed by social landlord Ongo and have been constructed in a £340,000 project on the site of a former area housing office.
The homes have been built by local firm Moore Facilities Management (MFM) and all have allocated off-road parking spaces, modern kitchens and spacious bathrooms, as well as open plan living and energy efficient features.
They will be available to bid on through the Home Choice Lincs service.

The homes' completion comes as it has been announced that work is set to start in the spring on building the first of 240 more affordable homes in the Scunthorpe area in a £25 million project between North Lincolnshire Council, Ongo and the Government's Homes and Communities Agency.
Speaking about the new properties on Henderson Avenue, Martin Phillips, development manager at Ongo, said: "We're so pleased with these homes, they look great and they’re so modern too.
"We think there will be a big demand for the homes, as they are in a great location.

"We'd like to say a big thank you to the residents living near the site for their continued patience and co-operation throughout the whole project.
"This is just one of the many projects we're working on to build brand new, affordable homes for the people of North Lincolnshire, so watch this space."
