Here is where New Homes are being Built on Ashmore Park!

This is the start of a new week – so good morning Wednesfield!

Over the past weeks we have been highlighting a construction project that will soon be under way in Townson Road on Ashmore Park. Two 2 bed homes are to be constructed in a former WH Garage site. These two homes are going to be added to the WH housing stock. In old parlance they are going to new Council Houses!

We are in 5 of the City Councils “small sites programme” and this phase, will deliver 34 council homes across 11 sites within the City, five of those sites are here in Wednesfield North within the Ashmore Park estate.

I know that people living here will want to know where these sites are. Here is the programme.

The sites at Ashmore Park are;
Townson Road former garage site – 2no 2 bedroom semi-detached houses
Simmons Road former garage site – 1no 2 bedroom bungalow
Wolmer Road former garage site – 2no 4 bedroom semi-detached houses
Southall Road former garage site – 2no 2 bedroom semi-detached houses
Woodside former garage site – 4no 1 bedroom apartments

Work is currently underway on all sites, with the exception of Townson Road, but this will commence once the licence is in place. City of Wolverhampton Council are using those redundant Garage sites, to increase our Council Housing offer. Without building on Green Open Space. If you look at Wednesfield North now you will find lots of homes that have been built in this way. At the same time the sites have squeezed out the Anti Social Behaviour which used to take place. I hope this article is informative for you.
