Lightmoor is a beautiful modern garden village in Telford.
It is being developed as part of a joint venture with Homes England (formerly the Homes & Communities Agency).
Outline planning permission for the village, a mix of owned, social rent and shared ownership homes pepper-potted across the development, was granted in 2003
Since then, a further 200 properties have been added to the masterplan, taking the total number to 1,000 once housebuilding is complete.
The village is being developed in phases, with each tendered using Homes England’s Delivery Partner Panel. Housebuilders are selected by BVT and Homes England based on quality and cost criteria.
At the end of 2021, over 650 homes have been completed within the village. A further 298 homes will be added to the village within the final phases of Lightmoor which are currently on site and due to complete by 2026. These phases are being developed by Jessup Brothers Ltd and you can read more about them here.
There are a number of shop units located at the centre of the village and there is a flourishing school and community centre and three popular parks. An orchard, where a tree is planted for every new baby born, is also full.
