First affordable housing development for Bromsgrove District Council
Bromsgrove District Council
Burcot Lane is an £8.6m housing development delivered on behalf of Bromsgrove District Council.
The scheme is the first of its kind for the Council and includes demolition of the original Bromsgrove Council House site, which will make way for 18, two and three-bed houses, 39, one-bed apartments and 4 two-bed maisonettes – a mixture of timber frame and steel frame dwellings.
The properties will be a mixture of affordable rent, private rent, shared ownership and market properties.
The homes will benefit from energy efficient improvements such as underfloor heating and air source heat pumps that absorb heat from outside air to heat water and homes, helping to reduce running costs and utility bills. Speller Metcalfe is also responsible for all associated works including adopted roads and drainage, an electric sub-station, hard and soft landscaping.
Funding for the project comes from both Bromsgrove District Council, alongside a grant from Homes England under its Local Authority Accelerated Construction Programme.
The project, which was secured under the DPP3 Framework, is due to complete in 2022.
