Leading housing association announces 220 new homes in Perton

Housing Plus Group is set to deliver more than 200 much-needed homes in South Staffordshire, after completing the purchase of residential development land in the village of Perton.

The leading housing provider chose Rural Housing Week to announce what agents Towler Shaw Roberts called “One of the most significant land acquisitions in the area”.

The 22.24 acre site next to Wrottesley Golf Club has outline planning permission for up to 220 new homes. Close to the expanding i54 South Staffordshire, it will provide a combination of outright sale, shared ownership and rented homes.

“We are very excited to share news about this flagship development during Rural Housing Week,” said Sarah. “We look forward to creating fabulous new homes in this popular village and to supporting economic regeneration in the area. Work on the i54 expansion got underway last month and is expected to bring more than 1,700 additional jobs in South Staffordshire. This represents a huge investment in the economic wellbeing of our region but will create even more demand for housing in surrounding communities.

“We are working closely with the Parish and District Councils to start work on these new homes and local amenities, such as allotments, as soon as possible.”

A report published by the National Housing Federation and homelessness charity Crisis in 2018 found that more than 21,000 homes need to be built in the West Midlands every year to solve the housing crisis. The report found that thousands of people in the region are currently unable to buy their own home or find a stable home in the private rented sector and that a dire housing shortage is pushing people into homelessness.
