Local councillors view new rural bungalows
24 October 2012
Local parish councillors for the Wrockwardine area of Telford took the chance last week to view six new bungalows that we are providing in the area.
The Trust has developed the site in Wrockwardine to provide homes for elderly and less mobile tenants, including two that have been designed for wheelchair users. All of the homes have a local lettings plan attached to them, ensuring that all new residents have a connection to the area.

Cllr Stephen Rawlings, Chairman for Wrockwardine Parish Council, took the opportunity to view the properties and said: "These new high-quality bungalows that the Trust has built in the village will provide much-needed rural, affordable housing for local people and those with a strong local connection to the area, as well as providing accommodation for those with specific needs such as wheelchair access. The Parish Council is looking forward to seeing people living on the site again and enjoying their new homes."
The homes were completed and handed to the Trust by developer Jessup this week. Residents will now be able to start moving into their new homes.
One of the new residents who are looking forward to moving in shortly is Mrs Muriel Goodfellow, who has lived in the village for over 40 years and is moving from a house to one of the new bungalows. She said: "I can't wait to move into my new bungalow on the Trust's development, they've been built really well and are in a great location and will be perfect for my needs."
Rebecca North, Development Surveyor for the Trust, said: "We're really pleased with this site as we've worked hard to make sure it fits in well with the local area and that it provides homes that are needed. The bungalows are built to a really high standard and we look forward to seeing the new residents moving in."
