Work starts on our Thimblemill Road development in Smethwick
Work has started to build 24 homes at Thimblemill Road in Smethwick.
Citizen are working with Tricas Construction and Build Fifty5 Living to develop the properties which will all be affordable homes.
The development will be made up of 12 apartments, seven two-bedroom homes and five three-bedroom homes.
The homes are being built on the site of the former Thimblemill pub, an area which has been derelict for a number of years.
Executive Director of Development at Citizen Nick Byrne said: “It’s brilliant that work has started on this development on a site which has been unused for a number of years.
“There is a need for affordable housing in this area and it will be good to provide this for people living locally.
“We’re pleased to have worked with Build Fifty5 Living who unlocked the opportunity and look forward to seeing the development progress on site with Tricas Construction.”
Managing Director at Tricas Construction Chris Gibbs said: “It’s good to be working with Citizen on this development which will enhance the existing site.
“We’re looking forward to seeing this development progress over the coming months.”
The development is set for completion in April 2022.
