Green light for 1,100-home development in Telford including retirement village

A developer has been given the go-ahead to begin work in Telford this summer on a huge new neighbourhood, which could include a retirement village and primary school.

The land at Priorslee, owned by Miller Homes, will see 1,100 two, three and four-bedroom homes built, including 220 affordable homes, as well as a show home and sales centre set to open in early 2022.

Further development on the site includes plans to fund the creation of a retirement village, a community building for local sports teams, a new primary school and play facilities including a skate park.

Miller Homes said the development located just off Castle Farm Way, would create over 100 new jobs for local tradespeople.

Commenting on the approval of the plans for the land, Martyn Grimes, operations director at Miller Homes West Midlands, said: “I’m delighted to be able to confirm the purchase of land in Priorslee, Telford. This is a new area for us in a popular part of Shropshire. We believe it will make a fantastic location for house hunters, offering a desirable Priorslee address with easy access into Telford, plus excellent connections to Wolverhampton, Shrewsbury and Birmingham.

“We’ve been working closely with the local council, residents and key stakeholders to ensure the development is in keeping with the surrounding town. We look forward to work getting underway later this year and to providing a range of high quality homes to suit a variety of buyers looking for a new place to call home.”
