Project Partner: Crest Nicholson

Local Authority Area: Wokingham Borough Council

Number of affordable homes: 69 homes for affordable rent and shared ownership


Catalyst worked in partnership with Crest Nicolson to deliver the affordable housing for the first two phases of their Arborfield Garrison scheme. The development has begun to transform the old Ministry of Defence site into a new Garden Village within the Berkshire countryside.

Aborfield Green combines the best of town and country living; providing 2,000 new homes, our residents will be living in the heart of a vibrant, healthy new community with countryside views and convenient city connections.

It is just four miles to the M4 motorway providing direct routes into London and Bristol, while Wokingham train station is just 3.5 miles away providing trains into London Paddington via Reading.

Catalyst delivered the affordable housing for the scheme, with phase one made up of eight shared ownership homes and 15 for affordable rent. Phase two saw us deliver 21 shared ownership and 24 homes for social rent, alongside 1 home for affordable rent. Work began in 2018 and completed in Spring 2020.
