Birmingham’s 10-year Housing Plan Published

by Paul Addison on June 24, 2019 No comments

Plans to build 2,708 new homes by 2029 have been published by the Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust (BMHT).

An assortment of housing styles are anticipated to be included in the 10-year programme.

Modular dwellings will permit the Birmingham City Council to unlock previously unused, smaller sites.

Traditional construction methods will be used when developing the larger homes.

Homes are anticipated to be built for sale, and affordable rent.

The council said:

“Quality, sustainability and design at the heart of their construction”.

Additionally, the plan covers roughly £346 million worth of housing sites across the city, this includes regeneration projects.

To this point, BMHT has developed 3,126 dwellings, with an additional 365 homes currently under construction.

A cabinet member for homes and neighbourhoods at Birmingham City Council, Sharon Thompson, said:

“With the city’s population set to grow by a further 10 per cent over the next 15 years, there is a pressing need to deliver more affordable, family housing within accessible locations to relieve the increasing burden… Birmingham City Council is leading the way in social housing and is moving forward with its ambitious plans for the next 10 years.”
