Dozens of homes in council firm 's plan for Telford village site

By Lisa O'Brien | Telford | News | Published:

A scheme planned by Telford & Wrekin Council’s housing company could see almost 40 homes transform a site in the borough.

Telford & Wrekin Council’s firm Nuplace has applied for permission to build 39 homes at a site off Snedshill Way.

The range of two, three and four-bedroom homes will be built by Nuplace’s development partner Lovell and made available for rent.

A report, submitted to Telford & Wrekin Council, says: "The application site will provide much needed accommodation on allocated residential land within the village of Snedshill.

"The site is in a sustainable location, where future residents will enjoy close proximity to schools, services, employment, and community facilities.

"The development of the application site will form a natural extension to the existing village boundary, terminating at Holyhead Road, the development will provide a feature to intersection of Holyhead Road and Snedshill Way.

"The site will provide quality new build homes for market rent with a small number of affordable homes, creating an inclusive development for different needs."

A decision on the proposals is due to be made in the upcoming months.

It is the latest scheme from Nuplace.

Last month, it emerged that work had started on a scheme to build more than 30 homes at a site in Newport.

Springfields will offer 33 two and three-bedroom homes, as well as two-bedroom apartments for affordable rent.

It is the sixth development for Telford & Wrekin Council’s housing company.

The housing development will offer homes at affordable rents for those who cannot afford higher market rents in the area.

Anyone wishing to rent one of the Nuplace homes at Springfields must demonstrate a clear housing need and a local connection to Newport.

Springfields is being built by Lovell, which has already developed sites in Randlay and Madeley and is currently working on other sites in Dawley, Madeley and Hadley.

It comes after it emerged that Nuplace will now look to build outside the borough and on third party land in a bid to increase its income.

NuPlace is already making £274,000 of clear profit for the council.
