One of the largest housing associations in the UK is creating its most significant own-built development in Winchcombe, just a few miles away from its headquarters in Tewkesbury.

Bromford is building 100 new homes in Winchcombe, with half available through shared ownership.

New homes provider Bromford is releasing 100 brand-new homes in Winchcombe, in its largest Bromford-built scheme to date.

Merret Place, on Delavale Road, is a collection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes, built entirely by Bromford, with half of them available through shared ownership.

Shared ownership gives first-time buyers and those who do not currently own a home the chance to get on the property ladder, with homebuyers paying a mortgage on the share they own and paying rent on the remaining share — meaning a smaller deposit is required.

Construction work is due to start shortly on 50 homes for affordable rent and shared ownership and 50 homes for outright sale.

The new homes prioritise high energy-efficiency and space for remote working, with electric vehicle charging points installed in a selection of homes.

Director of sales and marketing at Bromford, Catherine Jarrett, said: 'We are incredibly excited to be embarking on our largest Bromford-built development and the town of Winchcombe is the perfect place to provide these new homes.

'Winchcombe is a fantastic area with an intriguing mix of history and community with many lovely rural walks on its doorstep.

'All of the homes will be built to a high specification, and we expect them to be incredibly popular.'

Bromford, which is headquartered in Ashchurch on the edge of Tewkesbury, is one of the largest housing associations in the country.

Operating as a non-profit organisation, it provides open-market property and affordable homes and owns more than 45,000 homes across central and south west England.
