Housing Threats

Cuts of £21 million are threatened for new affordable housing in the Midlands. The Homes and Communities Agency has confirmed that projects to build almost 500 homes will probably not receive funding.

Under review are 172 homes at Longbridge and Lodge Road in Birmingham, the 100 home North Priory scheme in Dudley, 59 homes in Stoke and 158 houses planned for the Worcester Porcelain site.

230 homes being built by Birmingham City Council get the go ahead as £12 million is assured for their progress, but Rugby, Dudley and Stoke are likely to see £5.7 million cut from their plans to build 106 houses.
