ENGIE completes £19m council house regeneration project

25th February 2021

A £19million project to create 140 brand new homes across two estates in Tamworth’s biggest council house building programme for a generation is now complete.

The huge regeneration project, completed by ENGIE on behalf of Tamworth Borough Council, provides hundreds of modern and affordable homes at two estates -Tinkers Green and Kerria - with families already settling into the homes on both sites.

Cllr Michelle Cook, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Neighbourhoods, said: “We’re delighted that this massive regeneration project is now completed. This was such a significant investment in the provision of quality social housing that is fit for 21st century living. These new properties are really modern and attractive and I’m sure their new residents will be proud to call them home.

“The partnership with ENGIE has been a real success. Residents in the area were consulted throughout and the street scene in both areas is greatly improved. While the development and allocation of properties was impacted by the pandemic, we’re delighted that more families are now moving in and enjoying a brand new home.”

Lee Stoneystreet, Regional Director at ENGIE, said: Lee Stoneystreet, Regional Director at ENGIE, said: “The completion of this project marks the end of an era for the team involved, we’re so proud to make a difference to people’s lives by providing quality, safe and warm homes. Regeneration of communities is a key focus for ENGIE, and we’ve achieved that at Tinkers Green and Kerria - I hope the families moving in enjoy their new homes for many years to come.”  

Both the Kerria and Tinkers Green schemes were part funded by a Homes England grant which ENGIE worked alongside Tamworth Borough Council to secure. The sites were completed on time and within budget, adhering to COVID restrictions.
