Housing association Bromford is transforming vacant land on Cannock Road into a new MyPlace supported housing development with 14 self-contained one bedroom apartments.

Also included in the £3.1m proposals are 13 two and three-bedroom homes for affordable rent, taking the total number of new homes to 27.

Site manager Keith Jones said the MyPlace development would give adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to live independently in their own home.

B“This is such a fantastic location being so close to local shops, restaurants, parks, leisure centres, schools and colleges and we’re really pleased to have reached what is an important part of construction with roofers adding the first roof tiles to the north westerly part of the development,” he said.

“As the main housing provider in Lichfield district, this is an area we know well and where we are really keen to invest in.

“This 27-home development will not only provide affordable housing for local people but also give vulnerable people the opportunity to live in a safe and secure environment where they can take control of their own life, reduce their dependency and ultimately live more independently.”

Residents are expected to move in during the early part of 2020.
