Vistry Partnerships and Citizen are working in Partnerships to build more that 1,000 homes across the West Midlands

Vistry Partnerships and Citizen are thrilled to be working in partnership to build more than 1,000 homes at four sites across the West Midlands

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 – 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 Citizen has formed with Vistry. These homes will be marketed using Vistry’s Linden Homes brand.
  • Churchfields – This site also in Kidderminster will see 246 homes built. 100 of these will be outright sale for Citizen’s Signature brand and 146 will be affordable homes. These will be made up of 12 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 – 87 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 210-home development built on the former Hall Green dog track is nearly complete. Vistry will be selling 110 of the homes under its award-winning Linden Homes. Our 109-home development is made up of 29 shared ownership homes and 80 social and affordable rent homes.

Executive Director of Development at Citizen, 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.”
