Construction begins to deliver 38 affordable Wrekin homes

The Wrekin Housing Group is pleased to announce the start of construction on 38 new affordable homes has commenced off Park Road Malinslee, Telford.

The Group has partnered with Living Space Housing for this new development and they will deliver the construction contract in its entirety, which is worth over £6m. The first homes will be available for occupation before the end of 2021.

Matt Beckley, Development Manager for The Wrekin Housing Group said: “There is a real need for affordable, quality new homes. This scheme will be very well received because of its convenient location, great transport links and range of local amenities. We are very pleased to be working with Living Space and look forward to being able to hand the keys over to our new residents.”

Steve Davies, Managing Director of Living Space Housing said: “Having secured detailed planning consent for this scheme in April, we are so pleased to now be underway with the construction programme. We have a very skilled team working on this project and are thankful for all the support we have received from The Wrekin Housing Group. We hope this will be the first of many schemes that we can partner on together, in order to help meet local housing needs. While so much new housing and investment has been stalled due to the impact of Covid-19, we are working in accordance with our robust Safe Operating Procedure, which is keeping everyone safe across our development portfolio during this unprecedented year.

The accommodation mix for the Park Road development comprises four one-bedroom maisonettes, nine two-bedroom houses, 21 three-bedroom houses, two two-bedroom bungalows and two three-bedroom bungalows. Six of the homes will be purpose-built for disabled residents.
