New housing developments are underway

Two new housing developments, which will provide 28 new council homes, are underway in Sedgley and Brierley Hill.

More than £4.5 million is being invested in the two Dudley Council schemes.

In Brierley Hill, an apartment complex is being built which will provide 14 homes, along with three adapted bungalows for people with physical disabilities on Lower Valley Road.

A further eight apartments and three houses are being built on Beacon Rise in Sedgley.

The funding of the developments is being supported by Homes England grants of more than £900,000 for Lower Valley Road and more than £600,000 for Beacon Rise.

Jessup Partnership is working with the council to construct the new homes as part of an ongoing framework agreement.

The new homes are expected to be ready for people to move into at the end of 2023/early 2024. Councillor Laura Taylor-Childs, cabinet member for housing and communities, said:

“We are investing in the creation of another 28 new council homes for those in need of affordable housing.

“Working with Jessup Partnerships, we are committed to making sure they are homes which are both cost efficient to build and energy efficient to run.

“I look forward to seeing the completion of the work and people having the keys to their new homes.

The Lower Valley Road scheme provides 8 x one bedroom and 6 x two bedroom apartments and 3 x two bedroom wheelchair bungalows.

The Beacon Rise development includes 6 x one bedroom and 2 x two bedroom apartments as well as, 2 x two bedroom houses and 1 x three bedroom house
