MORE choice is on the way for homebuyers in Kidderminster from leading housebuilder Barratt West Midlands, as the construction of 68 new homes is well underway on Clensmore Street.

The new homes will transform a former carpet factory into a sustainable new community.

The new development, named Goodwin Park, will bring a total of 68 new homes to the area, 19 of which will be affordable housing. The mix of homes will consist of two-bedroom apartments and two-, three- and four-bedroom houses in the new Barratt house type range.

The site layout is in keeping with the surrounding residential area. Most of the new development will run alongside Millennium Green which is a large public open space which will give most of the houses at this new development a great view. Barratt will also be making improvements to the canal corridor as the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal passes through Kidderminster and near the new development.

Andrea Shotbolt, Senior Sales Manager for Barratt West Midlands, said: “We are thrilled construction has started at our latest development in Kidderminster. We are looking forward to creating a thriving new community.

“The choice of home styles will be ideal for first time buyers and growing families. The centre of Kidderminster is located just a five minutes’ drive away and is within walking distance of the development. The nearest supermarket is Sainsbury’s which is less then a ten minute drive.”
