As part of the first phase of new homes at its upcoming neighbourhood in Telford, Miller Homes is set to invest £5,849,619 into educational facilities within the Priorslee community.
Based off Castle Farm Way, the new Earl’s Grange neighbourhood, will comprise 455 two, three and four-bedroom properties, 91 of which will be affordable homes. Once all phases are complete, the development will feature a total of 1,100 properties.
A significant proportion of the funds contributed by Miller Homes will be invested in the construction of a new primary school, which will house over 210 pupils when complete. Additional funds are earmarked for improvements towards education facilities, providing secondary education located within a three mile radius of the development land.
Further investments come in the form of a contribution of £4,747,043 which will be injected into a number of community-wide services, with the money set to be spread across the duration of the development’s construction. £2million of that sum will be dedicated to new travel operations, all of which will serve residents of the new neighbourhood and the wider local community. These will include £875,000 for a new bus service and planned improvements of over £1million at Junction 4 of the M54 motorway, the Limekiln and Naird roundabouts. £15,000 will also go towards the creation of a travel plan.
Additional considerations are also being made towards the creation of a fenced playground on the development and community building as well as two football pitches.
Commenting on the investment, Operations Director for Miller Homes West Midlands, Martyn Grimes, said:
“If the last year has taught us anything, it’s the importance of having access to top quality educational facilities – whether schools or community libraries. That’s why we’re delighted to be investing in not only improving and expanding one local facility, but also in creating a brand-new school that will serve residents at our Earl’s Grange neighbourhood and the surrounding areas.
“We’re also proud to be improving transport links within the community, to enable our residents to travel more freely and easily around Priorslee and beyond to Telford. In addition, we’re hoping to strengthen the wider community offering by investing in recreational activities that growing families will love.”
Earl’s Grange is set to launch online in November 2021 where the first release of homes will be available to purchase, with the new show home due to open in Spring 2022.
“The launch of Earl’s Grange follows hot on the heels of our already successful Shropshire development at Tudor Park, which launched in 2020 and is just a 20-minute drive away in Shrewsbury. Tudor Park is proving to be very popular and we expect the same for Earl’s Grange when it launches online later this autumn. As a result, we’re encouraging househunters to act fast and register their interest to view the upcoming new show home next year. Or, for those eager to call our new neighbourhood home, they can also reserve a home online to avoid disappointment.”
