Partnerships West Midlands and Aspire Housing break ground in Staffordshire

Building has commenced on the Ashfield Grange project in the centre of Newcastle-under-Lyme, and once complete, the £14m development will comprise 89 high-quality apartments built for elderly residents.

The joint development with Aspire Housing will also feature shared facilities designed to create a community hub for local people to socialise and engage in a range of activities and events.

Vistry Partnerships’ Managing Director for the West Midlands, Darren Beale, commented: “The Ashfield Grange project is a great scheme for Newcastle-under-Lyme, delivering much-needed, high-quality homes in the heart of the town.

“However, we’re not just transforming the supply of housing for elderly residents; we’re also helping to create a real and sustainability community. We are thrilled to be helping Aspire Housing make this idea a reality.”

Vistry Partnerships is building the scheme in line with the Government’s Future Homes Standard, meaning that the building will incorporate energy-efficient materials and technology resulting in at least a 31% improvement in carbon emissions.

With work now underway on site, the first residents are expected to move in by Autumn 2022.
