Wolverhampton Urban Village Application Submitted

by Paul Addison on May 10, 2018 No comments

An application for enabling works at Bilston Urban Village has been submitted by the developer, Countryside Properties.

Located south of Bilston town centre and the Black Country Route, some 450 homes built across 27 acres could be seen with Countryside, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s preferred bidder.

Before a residential planning application, Countryside Properties will profile the land levels in preparation for housing on the site, depending on application approval.

The director for the city economy at the council, Keren Jones, said:

“We are working closely with Countryside to finalise the scheme and this is a major milestone for housing development on Bilston Urban Village.

Our plans to develop up to 500 homes on the site will make a significant impact in achieving our housing targets in the City of Wolverhampton.

The council has spent a lot of time making sure there is good road access, and ensuring that, with a bus-only link, cycle ways and pedestrian routes, the new housing will be well connected to the town centre.

John Gilbert, regional operations director for Countryside’s Midlands division, said: “This scheme will play a critical role in the city’s regeneration activity and, with our strong partnership model in place, the plans for Bilston Urban Village would provide residents with a vibrant, mixed-tenure neighbourhood, where the new homes are both affordable and accessible for a wide range of people.”

An additional 2 Bilston Urban Village plots are now home to some residents, (being developed by Kier) with landscaping work being conducted and a network of paths for walking and cycling being created.
