Former Bromsgrove council offices to make way for new homes

Speller Metcalfe Bromsgrove Council Offices

Malvern-based building contractor Speller Metcalfe has secured an £8.6 million contract to build a new housing development on behalf of Bromsgrove District Council.

The scheme, which is a mixture of affordable rent, private rent, shared ownership and market properties will provide more than 60 new homes on the site of the former council offices at Burcot Lane.

Mark Eaton, Living Manager at Speller Metcalfe, said: “As a local contractor we understand the need for sustainable housing in Worcestershire and are delighted to be working with Bromsgrove District council as they embark on their first housing scheme.”

Council leader, Karen May, said: “I am delighted that this council saw and took the opportunity to develop this land to benefit our residents and help them get a foot on the properly ladder, and even put a roof over their heads.”

Funding for the project comes from Bromsgrove District Council and a grant from Homes England. Speller Metcalfe will begin demolition works this autumn. The properties will be built next year.
