West Midlands team welcomes Shropshire Councillor to Weir Hill Gardens development
17 April 2023
A member of Shropshire Council was welcomed to our Weir Hill Gardens community in Shrewsbury to hear about the developer’s work in delivering high quality homes for local people.
Cllr Alex Wagner was given a tour of the Shrewsbury development on 12 April, meeting with the West Midlands team to discuss the opportunities and challenges facing the housing sector.
Cllr Alex Wagner, Ward Councillor for Bowbrook, said: “It was really interesting to be invited to Weir Hill Gardens by the Persimmon team. Building decent, affordable and sustainable homes for the people of Shropshire is incredibly important, and it was in particular good to see the new social housing on site.
“There has to be a better way of getting councils, developers and residents to work together, and it was encouraging to talk about the ways in which the system could work better for everyone locally.”
Daniel Hassall, Managing Director for Persimmon Homes West Midlands, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome Cllr Wagner to Weir Hill Gardens, demonstrating our drive to create quality homes within Shropshire.
“As one of the largest developers in the West Midlands, we’re committed to creating successful and vibrant communities across the region and beyond – and ensuring that when we do this, sustainability and community impact are at the forefront of our work.”
