Double celebration for WM Housing’s development team

Our Development Team is celebrating after reaching two crucial landmarks in our efforts to build new homes in our communities.

With five months still to go in the financial year the team has smashed its target for starting new homes and already beaten last year’s figure for completed homes.

The team recently entered into contracts which pushed us past the 512 new homes mark already this financial year – smashing our target of 472, with April still five months away.

Meanwhile the recent handover of homes at our Papenham Green site in Coventry pushed us to 184 completed homes for the financial year so far – more than we completed in the entirety of 2017/18.

The homes we have completed and started so far this year stretch from Coventry to to Herefordshire and even Shropshire.

Nick Byrne, our Executive Director of Development (pictured right), said: “To surpass what we delivered for the whole of last year in just over six months is fantastic.

“This is really important news for the organisation and it means we are working successfully with our partners to provide new, good-quality housing for more people in our communities.

“I want to thank everyone in my team for the excellent work they have done and continue to do to get us to this point.

“Taken together this represents a really important step forward in our efforts to provide more low cost housing to help people in our communities get a home.”
