Mayor lays first brick at new housing development in Telford

08 March 2017

The Mayor of the Borough of Telford and Wrekin, Councillor Rae Evans, visited a new homes development on Matlock Avenue recently to officially mark the start of the project by laying a brick to one of the houses.

Lovell Homes is building 95 two and three bedroom properties at the scheme which is called The Oaklands. 44 of the homes will be available for sale on the open market and 47 for rent from Nuplace.

The first homes will be ready to move into in summer 2017 and the homes for sale will be available from £125,950
Councillor Rae Evans said: “I was delighted to be invited to mark the start of this fantastic project and see how work is progressing at the site.
“It’s great that Lovell Homes are continuing to provide quality homes for the people of the Borough and I look forward to seeing the finished development.”

Michelle Barnsley, Field Sales Manager at Lovell Homes, said: “We’re pleased to announce that work at The Oaklands is now underway, with homes expected to be launched in spring.
“We were delighted to welcome the Mayor to help lay a brick to one of the homes on site last week.

“We’ll be delivering a range of exceptional new homes to the sought-after town of Telford and with construction work now in progress, we look forward to seeing the development grow and to welcoming buyers to the site.

“The homes for sale provide the perfect base for young professionals, growing families and downsizers.”

Jonathan Rowe, Director at Nuplace, said: “The Oaklands is a unique site with its homes to rent by Nuplace and opportunities to buy from Lovell. We are delighted at the demand for Nuplace’s private rental properties in Dawley so far with over 50% of homes to rent already reserved.”

Two show homes are due to be launched at the site: Plot 10, a two bedroom Weston style home and Plot 11, a three bedroom Westwood style home.

Telford also has excellent transport links with the M54 and A5 offering road links to the East and West, making this development ideal for commuters.
