Yarnton Green, Oxfordshire

The picturesque and thriving village of Yarnton lies a little more than two miles to the north west of Oxford’s Ring Road.

Yarnton Green was built in partnership with Berkeley Homes who approached us with a plan to develop a mixed tenure scheme in the heart of the village. Built to a high specification, the properties were designed to complement the village architecture by using local brick and stone. Courtyards, large green communal areas and children’s play areas were all integrated into the development to give it a strong community feel.

The scheme was notable for the excellent partnership between Catalyst and Berkeley Homes who had worked together on the Eagle Works scheme in the Jericho area of Oxford. This collaboration enabled real engagement with the local community and helped to forge strong relationships with the parish council, local schools, churches and the local authority.

The development consists of 138 affordable units, 68 rented and 70 available for first-time buyers. The scheme was completed in March 2012.
