Overview: Construction of 37 homes for Walsall Housing Group
Programme: September 2017 to September 2018
We are pleased to be delivering another Land and Build Package with our partners WHG on a scheme at Brownhills Road, Norton Canes, Cannock
The development comprises 12 number 1 bed flats, 18 number 2 bed houses and 7 number 3 bed houses, all affordable which means either affordable rent or shared ownership for the benefit of local people.
The scheme has been designed by Walker Troup architects after lengthy dialogue with the local planning team at Cannock Council and the layout has been supported by the Housing team at the local authority.
The development represents a £5m investment by WHG into the Cannock economy and also helps in tackling the shortage of affordable homes within the area.
Jessup are a Cannock based company and as such have a policy of using local suppliers and subcontractors together with employing local trade apprentices.
Jessup land team negotiated the land purchase in 2015.
Martin Rogers land manager at Jessup explains ‘ We offer on land based on support from our partners backed by our own in house building team so we understand all of the technical issues early on in the land buying process, so our offers are reasonable from the outset and we ensure completion as soon as possible.’
Jessup are preferred partners with the HCA and have just qualified onto the Developer Partner Panel (DPP3) which should see more land led opportunities for the business.
