Work to provide 24 new affordable homes in Bilston is progressing well, Accord Housing Association has said in an update on the development.
Accord is redeveloping the former office building and car park by turning it into a mix of one- and two-bed apartments.
The new homes on the Millfields Road site have been designed by Accord’s in-house design team, with the timber frames being built at its offsite manufacturing facility in Walsall, which specialises in creating high quality, high performance, low-carbon housing solutions.
Mark Patchitt, acting executive director of Regeneration at Accord, said: “Our development on Millfields road is bringing new purpose to the site of our former office by providing much needed, affordable, homes for local people.
“We are proud to invest in the area to help meet the ever increasing need for affordable homes.”
The £3m scheme has received £670k grant funding from Homes England and is a partnership with Wolverhampton City Council.
The development is expected to be completed by March 2021.
Accord provides 13,000 homes and a range of services, including health and social care, to over 80,000 people across the Midlands and beyond.
It is one of the largest housing associations within the West Midlands region, employing almost 4,000 people.
Accord is also a member of PlaceShapers, a national alliance of more than 100 community-focused housing associations.
