    A new partnership is set to see 40 new affordable homes built in Wolverton.

    Orbit Homes and Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) has put together a planning application for a piece of land off Stratford Road in Wolverton.

    If the application is successful, 25 shared ownership and 15 homes for social rent will be built on the land by Orbit Homes.

    The shared ownership homes will comprise nine two-bedroom and 16 three- bedroom homes. Four two-bed maisonettes, three two-bed houses, five three-bed houses and three four-bedroom houses will be social rent homes.

    This represents 37.5% of the total homes being available for social rent compared with policy requirements which stipulate 5%.

    Construction on the development will begin in 2023, with completion in 2024.

    MKDP Development Director, Matthew Green, said: “This development will add to MKDP’s aim to deliver much-needed affordable homes in Milton Keynes.

    "Our team has worked hard over several months, in partnership with Orbit Homes, MKC Council and Homes England to create a scheme where the homes will not only be affordable but where a high proportion will also be three and four bed homes rather than the apartments which often dominate on similar sites.”

    Andrew Hardy, Head of Land and Partnerships at Orbit Homes, added: “We are delighted to unveil plans for these much-needed affordable properties in the town of Wolverton.

    "With a wide selection of two, three and four-bedroom houses, as well as two-bedroom maisonettes available, there really is a home to suit every stage of life, and lifestyle.

    “This exciting collection of 40 brand-new homes off Stratford Road is a great opportunity to work in collaboration with MKDP, Milton Keynes Council and Homes England.

    "I look forward to seeing the site progress over the coming years and to creating a thriving new community in Milton Keynes.”
