Works under way to bring new homes to former Goodyear site…

Submitted by on March 15, 2019 – 7:00 am |

houseWork is well under way to help bring a Wolverhampton landmark back to life as the former Goodyear factory site is turned into 126 properties by a regional housebuilder supporting local jobs.

Persimmon Homes West Midlands has launched its Clock Tower development, which will see a collection of 114 two, three and four-bedroom homes being built, together with a mix of 12 one and two-bedroom apartments.

The former Goodyear clock tower, which has been awarded blue plaque status by Wolverhampton’s Civic and Historical Society, will act as a centrepiece for the development. It will provide a linking extension that will be used as an entrance lobby to the three-storey apartment block.

It is hoped a four-bedroom Wolvesey showhome will also be launched this summer, which will also feature a football-themed bedroom celebrating Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.

The development, in Bushbury Road, will help support more than 350 jobs locally, including direct staff, contractors and the wider supplier network.

Amanda Rogers, Head of Sales at Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “This development is certainly attracting some interest, as it will appeal to a wide cross-section of buyers.”

Amanda added: “Customers are currently buying off-plan which means they can secure their preferred property and location within the development. In addition, reserving at this stage means customers can truly personalise their home by choosing from a range of ‘finishing touches’.

“It also means that buyers have the maximum amount of time to prepare themselves, taking some of the stress out of moving home.”
