A new £3.6m development comprising 26 new affordable homes in Telford, Shropshire, has now completed.
Owned by Accord Housing Association, the development on Stadium Way in the village of Hadley has transformed the site of a former camping and caravan centre into a mix of one- and two-bed apartments and two- and three-bed houses for affordable rent.
The new homes are being built for Accord by Living Space Housing, which says careful consideration has gone into the development of the 1.3-acre site, with existing mature trees incorporated into the design layout to ensure the new homes sit well within their surroundings.
Sue Carpenter, senior regeneration officer at Accord Housing Association, said: “We are delighted to complete these much needed, high quality, affordable homes for local people.
“There is a high demand for affordable housing in Telford – this new scheme will deliver an affordable option for families and individuals looking to rent, helping to meet local housing demands and create happy homes.”
Paul Breen, Commercial director at Living Space Housing, said: “Delivering handcrafted new homes while keeping everyone socially distanced and safe has been no easy feat.
“All the project team is delighted with the quality of the street scenes that have been created here, which has regenerated and brought new life to this brownfield site.
“Having handed over the first tranche of homes, we are now working at pace to complete all the remaining works, so that all 26 affordable homes can be ready for occupation.”
The development is the result of partnership working with Telford and Wrekin Council.
Homes England provided £884,000 in funding.
