Earlier this month, we cut the ribbon on the Bilston Urban Village. The transformation from industrial use to housing and education has been a long time coming and is crucial redevelopment of the town. There will be two new schools, 500 houses and almost 35 acres of green space.
The green space is part of £1.6 million of landscaping works which have been funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Local Growth Fund, Section 106 private sector money and City of Wolverhampton Council investment.
Award-winning company idverde have transformed the area, creating a conservation and recreation area connected by a network of paths that link existing and new housing developments to key destinations like the town centre, WV Active Bilston-Bert Williams and the new Loxdale Primary School, which is due to open its doors in September.
The land is also set to be leased to the Land Trust, securing its green status for at least the next 125 years.
An eagerly awaited project in Bilston is finally taking shape and it looks wonderful!
