Work starts on 74 new homes in Werrington, Staffordshire

Work has started to build 74 new homes along the Ash Bank Road, Werrington, Staffordshire.

The development is a partnership between Jigsaw Homes Group, Countryside Partnerships, the UK’s leading mixed-tenure developer and Sigma Capital Group, a leading provider of build-to-rent properties.

Located five miles east of Stoke-on-Trent, along the south side of the A52, the 10-acre Ash Bank Heights development will provide 33 open-market homes for sale and 16 for private rent, with 15 homes for affordable rent and 10 shared ownership homes delivered by Jigsaw.

Purchased from Homes England and granted planning permission in September 2022, Ash Bank Heights will benefit from a large flood attenuation area on the south side, providing sweeping views of the countryside beyond, a children’s play area and a patchwork of green spaces. Additionally, a large parcel of land has been set aside as an ecological zone for native flora and fauna.

As well as new homes, the local community will benefit from a £192,553 contribution comprising:

  • £139,128 for local sports pitches
  • £46,425 towards community health care
  • £7,000 to encourage more sustainable modes of transport through the local travel plan

Offsite, road safety and sustainable transport improvements will be made on the Ash Bank Road including a new pedestrian crossing and bus stop improvements.

Garnet Fazackerley, Operations Director of Development at Jigsaw Homes Group, said: “There is a huge demand for quality, affordable homes and we have a strong track record of delivering much-needed homes for rent and shared ownership, as well as supporting local communities. We are pleased to be working in partnership to bring these new homes to the area together with green open spaces.

Phil McHugh, Managing Director, West Midlands, Countryside Partnerships said: “We’re proud to start working with our partners in providing much needed, high-quality new homes for Werrington, including 25 affordable homes. Furthermore, we will be bringing new amenities, such as children’s play area and an ecological area where wildlife can flourish, making Ash Bank a place in which people and nature can thrive.”
