The site of a former Church in Redditch is set to be transformed into affordable homes by housing provider GreenSquareAccord.
St Gregory’s Roman Catholic Church on Winyates Way, was built in the 1970’s and has been out of use since 2005. The church site has now been acquired by GreenSquareAccord who plan to build 25 affordable homes for local people.
The new scheme will provide affordable homes for the Redditch community comprising of five two-bedroom homes, 18 three-bedroom homes and two four-bedroom homes. A total of 12 homes will be for social rent while 13 units will be under shared ownership.
Constructed from our low carbon Eco timber panel system, the occupiers of these new affordable homes will benefit from many of the features of living in a modern, thermally efficient home. The fabric of the homes will be constructed from sustainable, low carbon materials that will ultimately lower overall energy demand which will result in lower heating bills.
Off-site construction will ensure the homes can be built in a cleaner environment with less waste products than traditional builds and with minimum disruption for residents moving into the development.
Carl Taylor, Assistant Director New Business at GreenSquareAccord said: “We are delighted to have sealed this deal which will help bring back this derelict land into much needed affordable housing for the people of Redditch. This development is an example of how GreenSquareAccord together with Redditch Co-operative Homes continue to invest into the communities of Redditch to create a lasting positive impact.”
The new homes will be managed by Redditch Co-operative Homes. To register an interest in these or any other homes on the Redditch Co-operative Homes waiting list please contact Kimmy Dillon on 07834 460369 or visit https://bit.ly/RCHWaitlist
