Final handovers complete at our Lightmoor Road development

Lightmoor Road Final Handovers

With construction work complete at our Lightmoor Road development in Little Dawley, Telford, the final handovers have now taken place.

Working with MORRO Partnerships, LoCaL Homes and Telford and Wrekin Council we have delivered 49 houses and 3 bungalows all available for an affordable rent. The development contains two and three-bedroom bungalows alongside two and three-bedroom houses, catering to a variety of local housing need.

Tony Birrell, one of our customers who recently moved into a bungalow in Chapel Green which is part of the Lightmoor Road development, said: “I have been in my new home for a few weeks now. It is really suited to my needs, and I love the fact I am the first person to live here. The location is great with the Shropshire countryside on my doorstep but also with shops not too far away. It’s amazing having Ironbridge so close too.”

The new development is built on a four-and-a-half-acre plot where a concrete works once stood. 

Rachel Wood, our Senior Regeneration Officer said: “It is wonderful to see our customers settling into their new homes at Lightmoor Road.

“It has been a privilege to work on this scheme which has seen a former industrial site transformed into 52 high quality, new and affordable homes which will be of benefit to the local community.”

Our new homes on Lightmoor Road have been constructed using prefabricated open-panel  timber frames supplied by LoCaL Homes - an award winning, low carbon manufacturing facility based in Walsall.

Mike Doolan, Sales & Partnerships Manager at LoCaL Homes, added: “We are delighted to have worked with MORRO Partnerships and GSA  to deliver 52 new, high-quality homes for the community of Little Dawley.

“With the use of offsite manufacturing, each home has been constructed from our low carbon open timber frame panel, the Eco 100. Each panel is filled with environmentally friendly, fire resistant mineral wool insulation before being completed with traditional brickwork and render; providing greater energy efficiency performance for tenants.”

Councillor Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for homes and enforcement commented: “Housing is one of our key priorities in Telford and Wrekin as we set to protect, care and invest to create a better borough for all of our residents. As a council we want to ensure local people have opportunities and choices over where they live, in homes that are of good quality and are affordable. New developments like Lightmoor Road are a key part of this and it’s great to see this project come to life.”

The award-winning Telford Town Park and all the amenities of Telford are less than ten minutes by car from our new homes on Lightmoor Road.
