Strong demand for Council owned homes
Strong demand for Council owned homes
Nuplace’s latest housing development Rowan View in Snedshill has become fully reserved, more than six months before tenants start to move into their new homes.
The new development, which is located off Snedshill Way, will see 37 two, three and four bedroom homes ready to move into from winter 2020. The site is jointly owned with Midlands’ landlord whg who will also deliver a further 39 homes for a mix of affordable rent and shared ownership.
Nuplace, which is wholly owned by Telford & Wrekin Council, is committed to delivering a quality rental ‘home for life’ for individuals, couples and families.
Tenants Carra and Daniel have reserved their family home at Rowan View and are now preparing for their move this winter.
They said: “For us, reserving off plan was the perfect opportunity to secure a brand new rental property in the area we wanted. It was important that we stayed in St Georges, so when we saw the new site being built we enquired straight away and were delighted when we reserved our new home.
“We will be moving into a bigger house so reserving off plan has allowed us extra time to think about the furniture we need and to save – it has taken away additional stress and having to rush. We can’t wait to move in and have the extra bedroom for the children to enjoy their independence and with the security of living in a Nuplace home.”
Councillor David Wright, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Housing, commented: “Nuplace prides itself on offering quality homes for rent in great locations around the borough and we are delighted at how popular these new homes have been in Snedshill.
“This site builds on the success of the adjacent Nuplace site, where 39 properties were also reserved within four weeks back in 2018. Both of these new developments benefit from being close to the town centre, local shops, bus routes and also the train station, which make the site ideal for young families and people moving into the borough.”
Nuplace has also started building work at an additional development ‘Maple Fields’ in Dothill which will bring Nuplace’s total rental portfolio to over 400.

Well… That would be useful if there were any properties on this website.
They are too expensive for people on low incomes
Plenty more drug dens then
Are they going to build any bungalows ?
Hope they keep hold of them and don’t sell them as right to buy. It would be such a shame for so many families in need of decent, affordable housing.

Long term plan to make Telford a commuting town ..
As working family we still couldn’t afford the rent on these
You also have to give them a. Ridiculous amount of information.. Not quite quite sure why they need my car registration to rent a house

Chloe Williams this any good x
How many homes are being built or how many of these are allocated to people on benefits. There does not seem to be any provision for rentals of the LHA price.
What about people on UC who work part time.
Where is the affordable social housing ?
Need council renting. Only ones on there atm are part own but have to earn over x amount to have one
Taylor Stokes hope this helps x
We love our Nuplace home, we relocated here from London almost 4 years ago, never regretted it. Would love to buy it one day if possible!
Council houses are always in high demand because there isn’t enough of them and they’re super hard to get, is this news?
Very expensive rent though
Poor people don’t know what they’re getting themselves into. I rent from them and the house is falling apart, price keeps going up and up and they don’t care about their tenants at all. I wouldn’t rent from them again if they were paying me to do so.
I absolutely love the idea of NuPlace. Security is so important when renting. So many private landlords don’t understand the difference between a house and a home.
How does the council expect anyone to be able to afford this?!
I don’t have kids so getting a council house I’m not priority. No wonder there are so many homeless in our town
nuplace belongs to the council but yet its assed as private rental and in doing so charges stupid rents what happened to the government stating so many affordable homes are meant to be built well doesn’t apply here in Telford as all new builds belong to these or the private companies who just build to sell some one should be looking into Telford about the affordable homes as there’s not many people moving out of there housing ass house unless it’s an exchange so where are families and single people meant to live many can’t even afford to leave home cause the rents are too high
