A London charity has imported steel containers from China and converted them into bargain basement homes, as part of a novel solution to try and solve homelessness amid soaring rents in the British capital.
Homeless people will be able to move into shipping containers in a former scrap metal yard in a bid to tackle a city’s housing shortage.
The converted containers will provide temporary homes for a period of five years for 36 men and women with a history of homelessness.
Six containers are due to arrive in the New England Quarter of Brighton, East Sussex, today with a further 30 arriving by the end of the week.
Ross Gilbert, from developers QED, said the first residents are expected to move into the containers in about five weeks’ time, turning the “exciting and innovative housing concept into reality”.
He said: “Our temporary use of land earmarked for future regeneration demonstrates just what can be done in the interim to help solve the acute housing shortage.” gold, bullion, bitcoin, price, dollar, hyperinflation, inflation, obama, usd, crisis, collapse, agenda, debt, economy, finance, wall street, silver, federal, reserve, EU, euro, money, max keiser, banks, bankers, economic, USD, exchange, business, latest, breaking, news, media, report, 2013, conspiracy, world, gerald celente, alex, jones, infowars, journal, trends, glenn beck, stock market, ron paul, trading bigeyenews tax taxes credit crunch insurance credit cards loans how to make money and more.
The units were designed and constructed in Holland in 2010 by TempoHousing, Brighton Housing Trust chief executive Andy Winter said,
In a blog post on the BHT website, Mr Winter wrote that shipping containers had rarely been used as temporary living accommodation in the UK.
However, were a number of examples in continental Europe, with the most notable project in Keetwonen, Amsterdam, a development by TempoHousing of 1,000 containers which was completed in 2006 and is still in use.
When the land being used for the Brighton project is eventually redeveloped, the accommodation units could be transferred to other locations, the charity said.
