Development partners

This development has been built on a conservation site that would normally be reserved for open market sale. However, Hastoe and CG Fry & Son Ltd secured this heritage site for a 100% affordable housing scheme.

The site was a former coal yard and and is part of the historic rope walk. This has influenced the final design which is a traditional style of architecture found locally, relying on correct scale, hierarchy and proportioning with appropriate detailing. It includes most of the features of Hastoe's New-Build Standard.
