Building Work Gets Underway at Broomhall Way

Work to deliver 92 new homes at Broomhall Way in Worcestershire has moved closer. Rooftop Housing, The Mayor of Worcester, and Vistry Partnerships met to break the ground at site where 92 new homes will be built over the next 2 years.

The Broomhall Way development on the former car boot site at the junction of the A4440 Broomhall Way and the A38 Bath Road will feature homes built to the innovative Rooftop Living Homes Standard. The RLHS means that these homes will feature solar PV panels, homes arranged east to west, to make the most of the sun, and the apartments all have carbon neutral Ground Source Heat Pumps.

Outside will be green spaces, a wildlife pond, allotments, a communal orchard and play area. A Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS) will reduce the ecological impact of the scheme and help residents to live sustainably.
The breaking of ground marks the first milestone for the project, which is expected to be completed by summer 2024. Once completed, the development will feature 92 new 1,2- and 3-bedroom homes.
The new development will also feature a community space and café, as well as the integration of Pauls Moss House into the scheme.

David Hannon, Executive Director (Investment) at Rooftop Housing Group said “We’re delighted that we have started work on these 93 sustainable homes for local people.

Rent will be at social rent levels and the sustainability measure we are taking inclusion the use of innovative ground source heat pumps and solar PV will help keep energy bills down whilst reducing carbon emissions all helping our people and the planet. These homes will give 93 families in Worcestershire the stable and modern home that they need. Rooftop is here to help local families.”

Darren Beale, Managing Director added: “It was great to meet today and break ground as our first mayor milestone of the development.

As one of the country’s leading regeneration specialists we recognise the need to support our partners to build homes across all tenures. We look forward to building these homes for residents to have a happy and joyful place to move to.”

Councillor Adrian Gregson, Mayor of Worcester said “We’re pleased to see this part of the South Worcestershire Development Plan, the Urban Extension, start to be developed.

And we are very pleased to provide housing for local people because that’s what it’s all about. We have a housing crisis in this country, and this is an opportunity to do something about it.”
