Langford offers up free homes

The City of Langford is giving away seven houses for free. The catch? The homes must be moved from their Leigh Road locations at the takers’ expense. The houses were purchased for the completion of the Leigh Road Interchange and are now deemed surplus.

“Rather than demolish the houses and add to the landfill, we believe it made more sense and is much more environmentally responsible to have the houses moved and re-used in some fashion,” said Matthew Baldwin, Langford’s director of planning.

Anyone with interest in the homes is asked to call Baldwin at 250-478-7882.
