New modular homes to help address Coventry's 'urgent housing need'

Coventry Editorial 16th Dec, 2023   0

COVENTRIANS have begun moving into 24 affordable new modular homes which were greenlit to help tackle the city’s current housing shortage.

The modular homes are built at the Modpods International factory in Stoneleigh and transported to the site by truck, before being craned into place and connected to services.

The homes are a mix of bungalows and family houses that have been installed at Wedon Close, Bradney Green, Coleman Street, Fletchamstead Highway, Attoxhall Road, Capmartin Road, Shepherd Close and Thimbler Road.

Citizen Housing has worked with Coventry Council and ModPods International to build the homes on former garage sites across the city.

The council’s cabinet member for Housing and Communities Coun David Welsh has previously said Coventry has an ‘urgent housing need’ it needs to address.

He said: “This is a really efficient way to create homes affordable and I’d love to see more of these on similar small brownfield sites.




“We are committed to addressing the housing crisis and we are desperate for the government to effectively fund this work.”
