WORK on the multi-million pound Pauls Moss housing and health hub development in Whitchurch is progressing and two upcoming events will showcase the homes and jobs available.

The transformation of Pauls Moss began in 2022 with the aim of providing the Whitchurch area with modern health and care services, and bringing the existing GP practice into a purpose-built centre and community space.

Paula Reynolds, Head of Retirement Housing at The Wrekin Housing Group said: “These open days will provide the opportunity for anyone to come down and find out more about the homes available, whether you’re looking for yourself or a relative.

“It’s also a chance to learn more about the upcoming vacancies ahead of Hazelwood opening it’s doors later this year.


“The Wrekin Housing Group provides affordable homes for over 28,000 people, and we’re one of the largest providers of care and support services in the region.

“We’re really looking forward to bringing this new scheme at Pauls Moss to the community, giving choice to individuals to live independently while providing numerous housing and care employment opportunities.

“If you’re interested, we’d love to meet up and have a chat with you.”

Hazelwood is being built at the Paul Moss site by The Wrekin Housing Group under its ShireLiving brand and is set to open in summer 2024.

It will offer 71 self-contained extra care apartments for the over 55s and a new, modern, two-storey health centre for the wider Whitchurch community.

The new development will also feature a community space and café, as well as the integration of Pauls Moss House into the scheme.

The drop-in events take place Saturday February 10, from 2pm until 6pm, and Friday, February 16, from 2pm to 6pm at the Sports Hall at Whitchurch Civic Centre.

There will also be an opportunity to find out more about the different jobs available at the scheme, including roles available in care, catering and building maintenance.  

The £19.1m development is a collaboration between the Wrekin Housing Group, Shropshire Council, NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and local GPs and construction is being delivered by Countryside Partnerships South West Midlands.
