£1.2m Bromford Housing Project in Donnington opens
A former orchard which lay derelict for years has been transformed into a brand new two-storey supported housing scheme as part of a £1.2m project.
Bromford has invested in the Donnington area of Telford with the completion of its latest MyPlace development, Orchard Place, which is situated on land off Wrekin Drive. The housing association’s in-house construction team built the 14 self-contained one bedroom apartments following a 10 month project. On Monday 14th August a grand opening was attended by new residents and a number of partnership organisations including Telford & Wrekin Council.
Orchard Place will offer adults living with mental health conditions the opportunity to live in their own home and also includes a communal hub, kitchen area, site office, car parking and landscaped gardens. Accord Housing Association will deliver the support contract which is funded by the council and Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
As part of Bromford’s commitment to meeting local housing need, it has also recently started on site with another MyPlace scheme in Holly Road, Little Dawley, where the former pub has been demolished. That site is due to open in summer 2018.
