Plans for second stage of our Springvale development approved

We have been given the greenlight by the City of Wolverhampton Council to build another 57 new affordable homes next to our current development on Millfields Road, Bilston.

The new homes are comprised of one and two-bedroom flats built on land where the Springvale Sports and Social Clubhouse once stood. The former clubhouse has given its name to our new development.

This is the second stage of our Springvale scheme with the initial phase seeing office space previously used by Accord Housing converted into 24 one- and two-bedroom apartments available for an affordable rent.

Mike Nolan, our Head of Development said: “We are delighted to have the plans approved for the second stage of our Springvale development.

"Once complete, we will be providing 57 much-needed, quality and energy-efficient affordable homes for local residents. This is an excellent use of a brownfield site which help to meet housing need in Bilston without placing pressure on green open spaces.”

Our new homes at the Springvale development will be built using sustainable timber frames manufactured and supplied by our LoCaL Homes facility in Walsall. A fabric first approach has been taken to the design of the apartments which will help customers save money on their heating bills. LoCaL Homes also helped deliver the first stage of the development.

Mike Doolan, Sales & Partnerships Manager at LoCal Homes said: “We are really excited to continue our partnership with both Wolverhampton Council and GreenSquareAccord. We will continue to provide energy efficient homes which will be cleaner, greener and healthier for the residents of Bilston.”

Our Springvale development is conveniently located with a supermarket, pubs and all the amenities of Bilston high street less than half a mile away. Our Springvale customers are well connected by public transport having just ten minutes to walk to get to The Crescent Metro Stop and with bus services running directly outside the development.

Construction is expected to start on the second stage of the Springvale development in the autumn of this year.
