Bromford is bringing down ten properties to make way for 24 new ones as part of the scheme which has been part-funded by the Homes and Communities Agency and Lichfield District Council.

Construction is expected to start in September once the current concrete houses have been removed.

People living in the old houses are being helped to find new homes and have been offered the chance to return to the new properties once they’re built.

Suzanne Shead, Bromford’s head of locality, said: “We are very excited to reach this point in the project as Levett Road is the first of Bromford’s regeneration schemes and we know it will bring tangible benefits not just to our customers but also the wider community.

“We are committed to providing each of our customers with a high quality home that meets their needs and felt that Levett Road provided us with a fantastic opportunity to regenerate these homes and invest in the area.

“We know the demand for affordable properties to rent is high and by incorporating shared ownership into the site we are also giving people who can’t necessarily afford to buy on the open market a brilliant opportunity to get on the property ladder.

“With the UK’s housing shortage showing no signs of slowing down, financially strong organisations such as Bromford have a pivotal role to play in investing in new and existing homes and services. As the main housing provider in Lichfield, this is an area where we can really make a difference in.”
