January 21, 2022
Cornovii Homes, Shropshire Council’s wholly owned housing company, is pleased to announce that the first four home-owners have moved into their new homes at The Frith in Shrewsbury.
Comprising of 33 properties with a range of two, three and four bedroom homes, The Frith is a vibrant housing development with a build value of £4.5 million.

With modern living and future energy efficiency in mind, the properties are built with 31% higher energy standards than your average new build home, the homes benefit from solar panels and have increased insulation.
The development is due to be completed in May 2022 and all homes have now been reserved. The development was constructed by Cornovii Homes’ development partner, Shrewsbury-based Morris Property.
Mr and Mrs Clipson one of the new owners discuss their experience of purchasing a Cornovii Homes property: “We’re so excited to have collected the keys to our new home. Buying a home which is closer to our family with smart technology and within walking distance of Shrewsbury town centre was a huge priority for us. We’re also really happy with how sustainable the properties are at The Frith, which will help us save money on our utility bills. The Cornovii sales team has been very supportive throughout the purchase process and kept us up to date on progress of the construction of our home and supported us when we chose our kitchen and bathroom finishes.”
Harpreet Rayet Managing Director of Cornovii Homes discusses the new home-owners moving in: “We’re really excited to welcome our first four families to The Frith. The homes are built to a high quality and are all sustainable – exceeding energy standards set across the industry, and we’re confident our new home-owners will enjoy living here for years to come. I believe very strongly in the transformative power of housing not only to change lives but to revitalise locations like this, create jobs and support local businesses.”
Dean Carroll, Shropshire Council’s cabinet member for Physical Infrastructure, added: ‘”It is great news Cornovii Homes, Shropshire Council’s housing company has delivered its first homes. The development at the Frith is a great example of how good quality, mixed tenure and sustainable homes can be built on a brownfield site using local contractors and suppliers..”

Cornovii Homes will also be making a contribution of £160,000 to fund the construction of a BMX track at Upton Lane, Belvidere.
