Persimmon Homes begins work to create new home on former Wolverhampton energy plant site
Work is underway to prepare the site of a former energy plant in Wolverhampton and build over 240 new homes.
Persimmon Homes West Midlands has begun work on the infrastructure of the new development after being given the go-ahead to build on the former Elam Energy Plant in Ward Street, Ettingshall.
The homes will be a mixture of two-, three- and four-bedroom properties, with building work due to start in April. The 242 homes will form an extension to the Ettingshall Place development, on which Persimmon has already built around 450 homes.
“We are expecting a lot of interest in this site, as there is a strong need in the town for new homes. In turn, this development will also create jobs, boosting the local economy,” said Stephen Cleveley, sales director at Persimmon Homes West Midlands.
“Work on the infrastructure of the site is now under way and piling work should begin in the next few weeks. Remodelling work will also be undertaken on a former railway cutting to create an area of open space.
“We aim to provide a diversity of house types to suit all needs and have designed the properties to cater for today’s modern way of life.”
