Emma Reynolds, Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton North East has welcomed the city’s first modular constructed council properties.

Wolverhampton, like many councils are facing a shortage of housing and many thousands of people on the waiting list for council housing.

In an effort to help tackle this problem, the City of Wolverhampton Council commissioned council homes that were constructed totally offsite and were recently delivered and installed AT their permanent address in Fallings Park.

The houses are the first of their kind delivered by the City of Wolverhampton Council in partnership with Wolverhampton Homes, and the completed houses should be ready for handover later this month.

The scheme is part of the council’s successful new build council housing programme aimed at bringing small derelict sites back into use.

Emma said, “This is an excellent and innovative initiative by the council and Wolverhampton Homes and I hope it is the first of many examples to be built.

“Wolverhampton Council and Wolverhampton Homes, are doing all they can to address the chronic shortfall in available properties and I commend them for their approach.

Clearly more is needing to be done but this is an excellent start.”
