We are delighted to be working with Black Country Housing Group (BCHG) to deliver thirteen brand new homes for affordable rent located on Darkhouse Lane, Coseley in the West Midlands.

The development has started on site and is supported by grant funding from Homes England.

We’re pleased to be working with main contractor, Morro Partnerships again too, with Waldeck providing:

  • Employer’s Agent
  • Clerk of Works
  • Principal Designer 

BCHG’s Chief Executive, Amanda Tomlinson commented:

“BCHG is excited to be developing new affordable homes on this site in Coseley with our partners Morro Partnerships and Waldeck Consulting, supported by grant funding from Homes England.

“The properties are designed to be highly energy efficient, minimising their environmental impact, reducing running costs for our customers, and will provide high quality much needed affordable accommodation for local residents in Dudley.”

Our Commercial Director, Graham Wright added:

“After a lengthy planning period it is great to be on-site with this project, which will provide some much-needed affordable housing for the area.”

The development comprises of 6 three bedroom houses, 3 two bedroom houses and 6 one bedroom apartments, creating a close-knit neighbourhood.  

BCHG’s environmental goals are also embedded in the development via: 

  • Heating and hot water being provided by electricity via an electric boiler with solar panels and battery backup – this is designed to minimise running costs for future residents and transition away from using gas. 
  • Secure cycle storage to encourage the use of alternative modes of transport. 
  • Electrical vehicle charging points for each property.   
  • Sourcing materials and labour locally, where possible including joists and trusses.
