We are building more than 1,000 homes across the West Midlands in partnership with Vistry Partnerships

We are thrilled to be building more than 1,000 homes at four sites across the West Midlands with Vistry Partnerships.

The homes will be a mix of properties including affordable homes and outright sale.

A total of £194,407,90 will be invested in the developments.

The developments include:

  • Lea Castle – we will be building 600 homes will be built on the former hospital site in Kidderminster over the next eight years. These will be 240 affordable – made up of 59 social rent, 100 affordable and 81 shared ownership – and 360 outright sale through a joint venture company we have formed with Vistry. These outright sale homes will be marketed using Vistry’s Linden and Bovis brands.
  • Churchfields – This site also in Kidderminster will see 246 homes built. 100 of these will be outright sale for our Signature brand and 146 will be affordable homes. These will be made up of 11 social rent, 84 affordable rent and 51 shared ownership. An old warehouse from 1902 will also be converted into one bedroom and two-bedroom flats at the 17-acre site.
  • York Road – 88 affordable homes will be built at the site in Hall Green, Birmingham opposite the former greyhound stadium – 22 of these will be shared ownership and 66 will be affordable rent. The brownfield site is more than two hectares and borders the trainline. The homes will be built with timber frames as an alternative construction method.
  • Hall Green – This development built on the former Hall Green dog track is nearly complete. Vistry are well on with privately selling 110 of the homes under its award-winning Linden brand. Our 110-home development is made up of 29 shared ownership homes and 81 social and affordable rent homes.

Our Executive Director of Development Nick Byrne said: “It’s fantastic news that we are working with Vistry Partnerships to build more than 1,000 homes across the West Midlands.

“Housing is much needed across the county and we are really pleased to offer a variety of housing to suit different people.

“Each of these developments are individual and the makeup of each site reflects what each area needs. Work on the homes will transform the sites over the next few years.”

James Warrington, Divisional Managing Director at Vistry Partnerships, added: “We’ve had a great working relationship with Citizen at Hall Green and all of our team are excited to be working with them again on three new schemes, all of which hit site before the end of the year. A genuine partnership is being formed to deliver much needed new homes in the West Midlands.”
