Council to build new homes in Wednesfield

City of Wolverhampton Council has earmarked four sites for the first phase of development by its own housing company.

Wolverhampton currently has sufficient land identified to meet projected housing targets but the council is eager to increase the rate of delivery. Subject to Cabinet approval, the housing company will embark on an initial three-phase development programme over five years.

The first phase, between 2016 and 2018, will see around 371 homes built on council-owned land, this will include 45 homes at the former Danesmore Park Primary School site in Ashmore Park, which is 6 fewer than was proposed in consultations last June, and 258 homes at the former Wednesfield High School site. There is also building works earmarked for the former swimming baths site on Prouds Lane in Bilston (40 homes), and former Ettingshall School site (28 homes).

A quarter of the homes developed will be set aside as affordable council homes – which could potentially be used as council housing and managed by Wolverhampton Homes.

Councillor Peter Bilson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for City Assets, said: “Identifying these four sites brings a council-owned housing company a step closer to becoming a reality”

Full surveys and reports are being gathered for all four first-phase sites, which will also require planning permission.

About the Author

I have nearly always lived in Wednesfield, I moved away briefly but missed the sense of community and so swiftly moved back! I honestly believe Wednesfield has more to offer than the residents often give it credit for and wanted to do something to redress the balance of negativity around where we live. Working for a media company using the internet and social media as a marketing tool I had the skills and passion to help set up WV11.co.uk so did!
