Burcot Lane

First affordable housing development for Bromsgrove District Council


Burcot Lane

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 has made 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 are a mixture of affordable rent, private rent, shared ownership and market properties.

The homes 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 was also responsible for all associated works including adopted roads and drainage, an electric sub-station, hard and soft landscaping.

Funding for the project came from both Bromsgrove District Council, alongside a grant from Homes England under its Local Authority Accelerated Construction Programme.

The project was secured under the DPP3 Framework.
