A partnership with national housebuilder Vistry Group is providing affordable homes for those unable to access market properties in Gloucestershire.

Twigworth Green, one of Vistry Cotswolds’ dual-branded developments which features both Linden Homes and Bovis Homes properties, is a modern development on Tewkesbury Road, Gloucestershire, which will see almost 600 new Bovis and Linden homes built over the course of the construction programme. Alongside the new properties, Vistry has shared plans to invest substantially in the local community, including the creation of a new local centre to feature a convenience store, dining and leisure provision, and a play area.

We have agreed a deal with Vistry Cotswolds to acquire 67 of the homes being built in the first two phases of the development. 41 of these properties, including one-bedroom flats and two, three and four-bedroom houses, will be available to rent, with the remaining 26 available through a part-rent, part-buy shared ownership scheme.

Nicky Carroll, partnership housing co-ordinator at Vistry Group Cotswolds, said, “We are proud to partner with Bromford to help provide much-needed affordable housing to the people of Gloucestershire. Twigworth Green is an exciting new housing development within easy reach of Gloucester, with purpose-built local amenities soon to be developed on site.

“It’s great to see our first happy faces moving into the homes at Twigworth Green and we can’t wait to welcome more to the community!”

Bromford project manager, Charlotte Conolly, added: “We’re always excited to see the first customers move into their new homes on a development. These are lovely homes built by Vistry which will allow people to put down roots in the area and truly thrive here in the years ahead.

“The development is going well and we can’t wait to welcome even more customers into their new homes at Twigworth Green over the months ahead.”

Last year we reaffirmed our status as a Homes England strategic partner with an agreement worth £240m to build 4,000 homes over the next five years. It is one of the country’s biggest housing associations and built more social rent homes than any other housing association in 2020, according to a survey by Inside Housing.
