Construction underway on new homes in Market Drayton

Once complete, the development will comprise of 209 thoughtfully-designed three and four bedroom private properties, as well as one-bedroom maisonettes and two and three bedroom homes, which are available as affordable housing for affordable rent and shared ownership. The mix of homes ensures the development will appeal to a wide range of buyers, from families and downsizers to first-time buyers.

Montgomery Place is located on the northern edge of the market town in a prime location situated off the A53 and just one kilometre from the town centre. The 23-acre site has an L-shape layout and encircles existing sports pitches.

As well as new homes, Tilia Homes will also provide £1.3million to the local community via the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL), an equipped play area, and walkways from the development to the surrounding town.

Ecology will be a key aspect of this development. Going far beyond the planning requirements, the scheme will feature over 27,000 sqm of public open space which will include a 20-metre undeveloped ecology zone either side of the watercourse Bird and bat boxes will feature around the development; and a 30-metre buffer zone and five-metre movement corridor will serve to protect the resident badger population.

Darren Humphreys, regional managing director at Tilia Homes Central, said: “We’re delighted that construction is underway at our Montgomery Place development and we’re excited to see the first homes complete and welcome their new owners later this year. Market Drayton is a desirable market town location within Shropshire, with stunning countryside surroundings and we look forward to delivering high quality homes, as well as habitats to protect local wildlife.

“The official launch of the development and showhome will take place around September time, but we welcome any interested purchasers to register their interest in the homes now.”
