A development of 22 new homes in Lozells which will help close Birmingham’s housing gap is nearing completion.
The City Reach development, in Lozells Street, is being built in partnership between Birmingham City Council’s Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust (BMHT) and housebuilder Lovell.
To mark the development’s fast-approaching completion, Cllr Tahir Ali, the council’s cabinet member for development, transport and the economy, visited the site to see for himself how work is progressing and meet those involved in the development. Also present were representatives from Lovell and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
The development is divided equally between rental and sale properties to suit a wide range of budgets, including affordable homes.
Cllr Tahir Ali said: “Having toured the site and seen for myself the excellent progress being made, I am pleased that the City Reach development is now approaching completion and will soon be occupied by Birmingham families.
“City Reach will offer 11 homes for sale, as well as 11 rental properties, which will be occupied by Birmingham City Council tenants, helping to close the housing gap in the city.”
Kate Rees, regional sales manager for Lovell, said: “We have developed an excellent partnership with BMHT who are following through on their promise to continue creating new council homes in the city. We’re delighted to have built these high quality new homes for both city council tenants and homeowners in Lozells. These attractive and well-designed properties give Birmingham residents a rare chance to buy a brand new home in a great location.
“Lovell has just four three and four-bedroom homes remaining for sale at the development which are all available with stamp duty paid. The Government-backed Help to Buy scheme is available on all the homes.”
