Dream bungalow for bumble bee enthusiast
21 April 2017
Among those to settle into their new property is Alan Adams, who is a long-standing member of The Bumble Bee Conservation Trust. For the last 11 years, Alan has been living in a flat, but now he has his own garden and is looking forward to planting some bumble bee-friendly shrubs and flowers.
The 70-year-old said “My one bedroom bungalow is absolutely fabulous and one of the best parts is the garden, where I will be growing various heathers and lavenders.
“Being in a flat for so long meant I couldn’t make the most of my interest in bumble bees and so having a new, lovely garden is a dream come true for me.”
The Park Road development consists of 81 high-quality homes, which are a mix of one and two bedroom bungalows, as well as one, two and three bedroom houses. It's the biggest site in our current development programme within the Telford & Wrekin area; generating £20 million into the wider economic community and creating almost 200 jobs across various industries, including 8 apprenticeships in the construction field. Joanne Hall, who is the Trust’s area manager for Dawley, said: “We are really pleased to welcome the new residents to Park Road.
“So far, tenants have moved into around a quarter of the properties and we expect all 81 to be occupied within a few weeks. It’s an exciting time for everyone involved and it is great to see the start of a fantastic new community emerging in this wonderful area.
“These are wonderful homes with modern kitchens and bathrooms, as well as gardens and parking. I have no doubt the tenants are going to love living here.”
