Bulldozers are set to start work at the site of the former Bromsgrove District Council House next month to make way for housing development which includes affordable homes.

The scheme, which is a mixture of affordable rent, private rent, shared ownership properties and market properties, will provide over 60 new homes for residents on the site of the former Council offices at Burcot Lane. 

Council Leader Karen May said: “I am delighted that this Council saw and took to opportunity to develop this land to benefit our residents and to help them to get a foot on the property ladder and even put a roof over their heads.

“We are committed to tackling the needs for affordable homes across the District and this is just the start.”

Funding for the project comes from both Bromsgrove District Council, alongside a grant in the region of £1M from Homes England under its Local Authority Accelerated Construction Programme.

The Council’s Portfolio-Holder for Strategic Housing Cllr Shirley Webb, said: “Our promises are being turned into action and this demonstrates our commitment to ensuring our residents can afford to continue to live in the District.”

Building contractor Speller Metcalfe will be working in partnership with the Council to begin building the new properties in April next year.
