Appeal for contractors for housing investment programme
Telford & Wrekin Council is always looking for ways in which to support local trade and keep the business pound in the Borough – and the next phase of its housing investment programme is no exception.
The council set up a wholly owned company called Nuplace to build 400 new homes for the private rental market.
Construction firm Lovell is the contractor working with Nuplace to deliver the second phase of the programme, which includes developments at The Oaklands at Matlock Avenue in Dawley and Miners’ Walk at Madeley Court.
Two further sites in Hadley and Newport are proposed subject to planning.
The Oaklands will feature 92 two and three bedroom homes. This will see 47 new homes for private rent by Nuplace and 45 homes being sold on the open market by Lovell.
Miners’ Walk at Madeley Court will see the development of 53 two and three bedroom homes with properties ready for occupation in spring 2017.
Lovell are looking to appoint local building contractors and construction specialists to help them deliver the projects.
Businesses interested in becoming a supplier or contractor to Lovell can download the supplier registration document to be completed and returned directly to Lovells.
Councillor Richard Overton, Telford & Wrekin Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for Housing, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for local businesses to help Lovell deliver the second phase of the Nuplace programme.
“I hope businesses across the borough will take up the opportunity. We are proud to be a business winning and business supporting council and the more money that can be spent in the Borough by our local businesses, the stronger the local economy will be.”
Children's Homes Location Risk Assessment
Following the launch of the Department for Education Children's Homes Regulations Amendments 2014, Telford & Wrekin Council has produced a summary of resources to assist managers of children’s homes and prospective providers of new children’s homes, to:
- carry out a risk assessment of the area before the opening of the home and then at regular intervals
- signpost a range of resources which will assist in the identification of potential risks associated with the local area and
- put in place appropriate safeguards where risks had been identified before a home opens (or where new risks appear over time).

C&YP Provider Forum

The forum explored an all age approach to supporting the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people whilst also raising aspirations to ensure that they can achieve everything they are capable of.
Topics covered at the forum included:
- exploring ways to support the emotional health and wellbeing of children and young people through music

- supporting children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities
- SEND Reforms
- advice and support from the Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service
