Planning Application for 43 Units in Tenbury

July 5, 2012

Kensington and Edinburgh Estates and West Mercia Housing Association have made a Planning Application for a 43 unit scheme in Tenbury.

The proposed development adjoins the existing Phase 1 scheme of 33 units and will deliver much needed Affordable Housing as well as open market housing.

John Cooper of Kensington and Edinburgh Estates said ” We have been working with West Mercia and our team to deliver an application which complements the successful Phase 1 scheme. We understand that take up of the affordable homes in Phase 1 has been very good and we have worked closely with West Mercia on this second phase to promote further affordable and open market housing. We will be advancing our discussions with the community and local stakeholders over the course of the next month or two to get their comments and hope that we will be able to deliver this exciting scheme with the Local Planning Authority in quick time.”

Kat La Tzar of West Mercia said “We are working closely with Kensington and Edinburgh Estates and the Local Authority to deliver important new affordable units as there is still a substantial waiting list of families seeking affordable homes in the area. We look forward to delivering Phase 2 of this important scheme which we have jointly invested in. Both Kensington and Edinburgh Estates and West Mercioa are aware that there is a pressing need for additional well located good quality housing stock in the area. This proposal will help to maintain the sustainable growth of Tenbury as a key Market Town within the Malvern Hills District. We see such sustainable growth as fundamental to delivering energy to the Town Centre and all the broad range of services that this Town supports.”
