More than 100 homes built at Oaklands in Tamworth

More than 100 homes have now been built by Ashberry Homes at Oaklands in Tamworth.

The development, off Ashby Road, is part of a wider scheme to create 535 homes on the 79-acre Anker Valley site. Ashberry Homes will provide 292 properties.  A new school will open on the site in September 2021 and more than 29 acres of open space will be created across the development.

Ashberry Homes started work in 2017 and so far 111 families have made their home at Oaklands.

Claire Black, Sales Manager for Ashberry Homes, said: “This part of Tamworth was identified as the ideal area to create a new community. The consistent interest and commitment from homebuyers have made Oaklands a friendly and welcoming place to call home.

“Much of the demand has come from Tamworth itself but we have increasingly found people moving away from Birmingham are keen to set down roots here. Tamworth offers value for money, excellent amenities and strong transport links across the Midlands.

“So far, we have helped a whole range of people find their dream homes at Oaklands, from first-time buyers, to growing families and downsizers. Homes range from two to five bedrooms, so we can accommodate most people’s needs.

“We have the privilege of helping a new community to form here and look forward to welcoming more new residents in the coming weeks and months.”

Construction work is well underway on the third and final part of the site. Ashberry Homes is due to complete the development by the end of 2022.

Just 13 homes are currently on the market at Oaklands, with more to follow as build progresses.

A handful of the homes will be available to occupy before the stamp duty holiday ends on 31 March 2021. Through its Assisted Move scheme, Ashberry Homes can also help people who need to sell their current property.

Prices currently start from £200,000 for a two-bedroom home at Oaklands. Visitors are welcome by appointment only. For more information, or to book an appointment, call 01827 788 285 or visit
