New show homes, showcasing homes on Dudley's flagship housing regeneration project opened their doors to the public over the weekend.

Visitors and prospective residents had the first glimpse of the new homes currently being built on Friars Gate, the former North Priory housing estate when they opened on Saturday May 28.

People are now able to go along and have a look around the Normanby two bedroom home and the Melbury three bedroom home which have been kitted out to showcase the new properties available for outright sale.

People can drop in anytime from Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm and also visit the sales centre which is located next to the show home and open during the same times.

Councillor Adrian Turner, cabinet member for housing, libraries and adult learning, said:
"As the new cabinet member for housing, I am delighted to see this development is continuing to gather pace and that it has reached yet another major milestone. With the first show home open, people can now really start to visualise living somewhere new and realise what a fantastic place to live this is set to be."

Eamonn McInerney, sales manager at Keepmoat Homes, said:
"I'm delighted with the level of interest we've had from residents and potential customers. We look forward to them having the opportunity to see the fantastic new show houses and utilising the various Keepmoat schemes to purchase their new home."

Bromford's head of neighbourhoods for the West Midlands, Darrin Gamble, said:
"It's exciting to see these high-quality homes taking shape and to be taking another step forward in realising the partnership's dream for this neighbourhood. Together, we are creating a community where people will really want to live - either as buyers or as Bromford tenants."

Another show home will be opened later in the summer by Bromford to illustrate the properties available for rent. It will also be used as a location for community meetings during the development of the scheme.
