Connexus, the social housing association which absorbed South Shropshire Housing, is about to start a major refurbishment of housing on Sandpits Avenue. In all, 77 homes will be refurbished with new flooring, insulation and heating. Tracey Huffer, Shropshire Councillor for Ludlow East says: “It is great news that this work is getting underway at last. These houses are far behind modern standards but they are sound enough to last several decades once they have been refurbished. “The work will be disruptive but it will be worth the inconvenience to bring these aging properties up to modern standards. The properties will be far more energy efficient and the problems of damp will be got rid of. “The gardens will be undisturbed and that will be good news for residents who have worked hard to create lovely gardens. Several of the houses have aviaries and these will not be disturbed during construction.”
