Vistry Group signs £68m deal to deliver 250 new homes for Hardingstone, Northampton

Vistry Group, the UK’s leading provider of affordable mixed-tenure homes, has announced a £68 million deal to bring 250 much-needed new homes to Hardingstone, Northampton.

The site, currently owned by Homes England, has outline planning permission for 250 family homes, with a mixture of affordable properties and homes for sale on the open market.

This new development will consist of two-, three-, and four-bedroom homes, which will be thoughtfully designed to complement the unique character of the village. Nestled on the southern edge of Northampton, this project will balance family-friendly housing with beautiful green open spaces and will cater to the diverse housing needs of the area.

A reserved matters application finalising the details of the development is expected to be submitted later this year ahead of works starting on site. All of the houses will be constructed using modern methods of construction, with timber frame panels produced at the Vistry Works factory in Bardon, Leicestershire. This will improve the sustainability and speed of the construction process, as well as reducing disruption for the local community. Each home built using these panels emits 14,460kg CO2e less than a traditional brick-and-block house.

Andy Reynolds, Managing Director of Vistry South East Midlands, said: “We are thrilled to have secured this highly coveted scheme to build 250 much-needed mixed-tenure homes for Hardingstone.

“We're excited to be a part of Northamptonshire’s growth and to be entrusted with the build of these new homes that will create a thriving and sustainable community for the future.”
