Council Housing in Wolverhampton - 1940s by John M
Housing in Wolverhampton was largely unaffected by bomb damage during the war. The immediate post war period saw the building of 400 prefab bungalows with a design life of ten years. Innovative steel framed properties were also tried in an attempt to speed up construction. The main developments were on the Bushbury and East Park Estates.



Prefab bungalows were also used in neighbouring Bilston, Wednesfield and Tettenhall.



The first houses on the Underhill Estate were built in the late 1940s.
