Woodland Walk now fully let
Telford & Wrekin Council’s private housing company Nuplace has now let all of the 101 properties being built at Woodland Walk in Madeley.
Tenants have already moved in to the first 52 properties with the remaining 47 houses to be occupied by the end of the year, once the properties are complete.
With Nuplace’s next phase of developments on the horizon, anyone who is looking to rent a Nuplace home won’t have too long to wait.
This second phase would see around another 160 homes for rent built on sites across the borough.
Work has already begun to build Nuplace rental homes at Matlock Avenue in Dawley and planning permission has been secured for homes at Madeley Court, while sites in Hadley and Newport are due to start on site next year, subject to planning permission.
Councillor Shaun Davies, Leader of Telford & Wrekin Council, said: “This is great news that all houses at Woodland Walk are now reserved. This development is on the doorstep of great amenities including Abraham Darby Sports and Leisure Centre and Ironbridge. I am sure everyone is going to love living here.”
Councillor Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for Housing, said: “It is fantastic that Nuplace has now fully let its first 132 homes at Woodland Walk and Pool View in Randlay.
“It underlines the very clear demand there is for this type of housingand we are now concentrating our efforts on the next phase to give more residents the opportunity to rent quality new homes in great locations around Telford and Wrekin.
“This is just one more example of the innovative ways that we are looking to generate income to help offset cuts in government grant – something that is essential that we continue to develop to lessen the impact of cuts on frontline services.”
The Oaklands, Dawley, is the first of four new sites being delivered by Nuplace as a part of the next phase.
This development includes 47 homes which will be available for private rent by Nuplace alongside 44 homes for private sale by Lovell Homes.
These are expected to be ready for tenants to move into from Summer 2017.
