Telford £6m regeneration scheme gets under way

Work is expected to start next week on a £6m regeneration project in Telford.

The scheme, which is due to finish next year, will see homes and shops built at Brookside, as well as a £1m redevelopment of the community centre.

About 30 flats will also be demolished and replaced by bungalows, which will be managed by Wrekin Housing Trust.

Councillor Shaun Davies, responsible for neighbourhood services, said the work was desperately needed and would "absolutely transform" the area.
