New affordable housing will be coming to Cannock after Bromford entered into a new building contract with Vistry Partnerships, formerly Galliford Try Partnerships (GTP).

The national housebuilder is currently onsite at Walkmill Lane in the market town building 116 new homes. Bromford will have 58 of these homes, which will be a mixture of social and affordable rent plus five homes which will be sold through Help to Buy shared ownership.

The Cannock site was secured by Vistry from Homes England through the Developer Partner Panel with Bromford now part funding its homes at Walkmill Lane through the £66m grant it received from the government’s housing agency when it was named as one of its strategic partners last year.

Bromford land manager Jo Noakes said: “There is a real need for more affordable housing in Cannock, so we’re thrilled to be working with Vistry Partnerships and Homes England on this site.

“Our goal is to build at least 1,000 new homes every year and partnerships like this form an important part of our efforts to achieve this. We’re looking forward to seeing the homes take shape over the coming months and to welcoming customers into their new homes.”

James Warrington, regional managing director at Vistry commented: “It is great to be working with Bromford  on this scheme. The site represents a significant contribution to the new-build affordable local housing market in the area and we hope that the local community will benefit from these new homes.”

Work is already underway in Cannock with the homes due to be completed in phases up to March 2022.
