The Levett Road scheme in Packington will see 21 new energy efficient homes built to replace 12 older properties which were bulldozed last year.

The Paddocks scheme is part of a regeneration project by housing provider Bromford, who will follow it with a similar £3.5million development at Clifton Campville next year.

Suzanne Shead, Bromford’s head of locality, said: “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.

“This is just the first of a series of regeneration schemes earmarked for Staffordshire and we know the Paddocks will bring tangible benefits not just to our customers but also the wider community.

“It’s very exciting to see the homes start to take shape and we know they will meet a real local demand both for affordable rented homes as well as people looking to get a first step on the property ladder through shared ownership.”

The company hopes the new homes will be completed in November. The previous houses on the site were made from concrete meaning they were costly to heat and run.
