BROMSGROVE District Housing Trust (BDHT) has recently completed works at Roman Court.
The affordable housing development includes 19 one-bedroom rent and shared ownership properties.
Based at the former All Saints garage site on Birmingham Road, each home at Roman Court benefits from an allocated car parking and cycle space.
The wider scheme also boasts improvements to vehicle and pedestrian access and high-quality landscaping.
Roman Court is one of many developments supporting the National Housing Federations’ (NHF) ‘Fix the Housing Crisis Campaign’ by delivering much needed affordable housing in the town.
BDHT was given the green light for the scheme in September 2019, two months after the car dealership closed. Construction on the development began in December that year.
Mark Robertson, BDHT chief executive, said: “The shortfall of affordable housing across the UK is creating a national crisis, placing enormous strain on services and having a detrimental affect on the quality of life of many people.
“This shortage is particularly evident in Bromsgrove, where there is an extremely long waiting list for truly reasonably priced homes.
“We are delighted with the outcome of this scheme, which is helping to combat the housing crisis locally, and the difference it will make to many individuals who have been struggling to own or rent their own home in the Bromsgrove.”
BDHT is a registered provider of social housing, serving the district of Bromsgrove and surrounding areas.
