Fresh Start for Old Pub Site

Fresh Start for Old Pub Site

A new multi-million pound supported housing scheme will open its doors in Telford this month after the site of a former village pub was transformed.

Gilbert Place, in Little Dawley, will start welcoming its first customers by the end of October after construction was completed on the £1.6m development.

The Holly Road site used to be home to the Red Lion pub before it closed around two years ago and was demolished earlier this year after planning chiefs from Telford & Wrekin Council gave the green light for redevelopment back in January 2017.

Bromford’s latest MyPlace scheme features 14 self-contained one bedroom apartments giving adults with learning disabilities the opportunity to live in their own home. It also has a communal hub, kitchen area, site office, car parking and landscaped gardens, as well as being the first MyPlace development of its kind to have a high-tech automatic sprinkler system fitted throughout.

Bromford’s latest investment in Telford comes after it opened its inaugural MyPlace scheme in Donnington, called Orchard Place, in August 2017. To secure a place at Gilbert Place or for more information call 0330 1234034
