First tenants move into Nuplace homes at Dawley site
The first tenants have begun moving into their Nuplace homes at The Oaklands in Dawley, two months ahead of schedule.
The Oaklands features 91 two and three bedroom homes. Nuplace will privately rent out 47 two and three bedroom homes and there maining 44 two and three bedroom homes will be sold on the open market by Lovell.
Properties were originally planned to be available from this summer but three houses at the site are already occupied.
The first couple, Jackie and Mitch have been in their new Nuplace home for (since 28 April). They said: “We have been in for a few days now and we love it. It feels spacious light and airy and a real pleasure to be home. We are off to a great start in our fabulous new home.”
Last week, Sam and Michael (pictured) moved into their first home together at The Oaklands site. After living with Sam’s mum they finally have a place of their own – although her mum will soon be their neighbor when she moves into her new home on the site, bought from Lovell.
The couple said they were attracted to Nuplace because it offered them long term security, as well as a brand new house.
The Oaklands is the third Nuplace site to be brought forward following Pool View in Randlay and Woodland Walk in Madeley, which are both now fully let.
Phase 2 will also include a site at Miners Walk in Madeley where building work has begun, as well as a further two sites at Hadley and Newport.
