Contractors will help deliver the local authority’s ambitious development programme, which has been significantly expanded to meet the area’s growing need for affordable housing.
The council’s renewed Housing Strategy aims to deliver at least 650 new homes by 2024.

Its construction framework will be used to award contracts for individual small-scale projects valued at up to £2.5m.
Work will include building new homes on old garage sites, refurbishing existing homes, conversions and extensions.
Nic Davies, managing director of Helix Group, said: “We are thrilled to have won a place on Slough Borough Council’s construction framework and are eager to play our part in delivering much-needed affordable homes for the people of Slough.”
Helix’s selection for the framework is the SME company’s latest contract success this year, despite the challenging environment created by the coronavirus pandemic.
Since March the firm has doubled its workforce, won a number of major house building contracts and been appointed to a string of procurement frameworks.
