Handover of affordable homes in Shropshire town

We are delighted to have taken handover of eight homes for affordable rent and shared ownership at Oakmere Ridge, in Ellesmere.

The Oakmere Ridge scheme is part of a Section 106 agreement with Shropshire Homes and includes 15 homes, which are a mix of two and three-bedroom houses. We have taken handover of eight homes to date, with the final homes to be handed over next year. 

Nick Powell, Development Manager for Housing Plus Group, said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Shropshire Homes on the Oakmere Ridge site. 

“The affordable homes acquired by us, as part of the Section 106 agreement, have criteria that stipulate that the homes will be made available to people living in, or who have connections to, the local area. This means that more local people will have the opportunity to continue living, building careers and raising their families in Ellesmere.” 

Celebrating the handover of the first homes, Andrew Rogers, Land Manager at Shropshire Homes, said: “We’re really excited to be completing our first batch of affordable homes at our Oakmere Ridge Development. These homes are built to meet new building regulations in order to ensure that those with additional needs in the area have access to safe and purpose-built accommodation, including for wheelchair users. 

“These new affordable homes mark the latest release of new homes built by Shropshire Homes for Housing Plus Group.”
