The Wrekin Housing Trust is one of the largest social housing providers/housing associations in the West Midlands with almost 12,000 homes for rent (and low-cost home ownership) across Shropshire and Staffordshire. Established in 1999, their portfolio of homes is growing through new developments across Shropshire and Staffordshire and includes everything from apartments in well-established residential areas to town houses and family homes in both rural and town locations.
Project description: A project to build 45 modern homes, including 32 two-bedroom houses, 4 of which will be built to Passivhaus standards with a GIA of 68m2.
Matt Beckley, project manager at The Wrekin Housing Trust, said: "This development is an important part of an innovative and ambitious project. By training more people and providing more housing, including environmentally efficient homes, as well as boosting the local economy, we are addressing a number of challenges at the same time. It’s an exciting initiative and The Wrekin Housing Trust is proud to be at its forefront."
