Work has begun which will eventually transform the Elizabeth Road estate in Cannock.
Contractors have started work on the demolition of the first vacant properties. This will make way for the construction of 50 new homes which will shortly get under way in the first phase of the major redevelopment project.
The Council is working with Waterloo Housing Association, part of the Waterloo Housing Group, on the redevelopment. Funding support has been provided by the Homes and Communities Agency through the Kickstart programme, which is aimed at supporting high-quality housing schemes affected by market conditions.
The first phase of 50 new homes is due for completion in spring 2012 and will include a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties for rent, shared ownership and outright sale. A further 100 family homes are planned in future phases.
Many of the existing homes on the estate suffered from low thermal efficiencies, insecure garden areas and inadequate or non-existent parking facilities. The estate itself has no play facilities, poor public open spaces and environmental features.
The redevelopment will change all this, with landscaped open space and a children’s play area. The properties will have the latest energy-saving features.
