Stafford and Rural Homes (SARH) has been given the green light for a £1.3million project to build 14 new affordable homes in Stone consisting two one-bedroom and 12 two-bedroom apartments on Elm Road.

The homes will be built on a former garage site and additional strips of land acquired from Stafford Borough Council and Staffordshire Housing Association.

“The new development will see a site that was previously an eyesore for local residents developed into an attractive development providing affordable homes which are also energy efficient and have been designed to complement the local surroundings,” said Alison Hayward, Development Manager for SARH.

The project has been supported with approximately £250,000 grant from the Homes and Communities Agency. The building of these much needed homes for rent began last month.
