More Affordable Homes: More Affordable Homes To Be Built In Birmingham A £12 million housing development by the Mercian Housing Association has been given further backing by Caroline Flint, the Housing Minister.
More Affordable Homes: A further £1.5 million has been granted by the Government to help build a new community facility at the YMCA site in Erdington, Birmingham.
The facility is part of Mercian Housing’s proposed redevelopment of the Reservoir Road area, which will include 83 self-contained flats. Peter Jones, Head of Investment for the West Midlands, at the Housing Corporation said, “These homes will meet our priority for reducing the level of homeless people within the region. The scheme will meet the objectives for both the Housing Corporations National Affordable Housing Programme and the Place For Change programme.” The money was awarded under the Government’s Places of Change agenda which was one of sixty-nine successful bids nationwide. The project has been designed to meet level 4 of the code For Sustainable Homes, the highest level for a development of this type in Birmingham.
