Housing association Catalyst has started work on the phase of 24 new homes for shared ownership that will complete Kite Meadows in Princes Risborough.

Kite Meadows is a stunning new development of 98 two, three, four and five-bedroom homes for affordable rent, shared ownership and market sale. Phase one of the project delivered 74 new homes and this final phase of 24 is due to complete in summer 2023.

Catalyst, a subsidiary of the Peabody group, has appointed Star Contractors Ltd to build the remaining homes. In total, Kite Meadows brings 17 new homes for affordable rent, 40 for shared ownership and 41 for market sale.

The new homes are a mixture of modern, spacious and light-filled terraced, semi-detached and detached homes with eye-catching modern design set within the Chiltern Hills. The historic market town of Princes Risborough is a short walk away and London only 40 minutes by train. The name Kite Meadows reflects the prevalence of red kites in the area.

Joe Marshall, Regional Managing Director, Counties North, at Peabody said:

‘Peabody has 160 years of placemaking experience in London and the South East, and this final phase of new affordable homes at Kite Meadows in Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire marks another significant achievement in our development programme and strategy.

‘Located in our Counties North region, Princes Risborough is a beautiful, historic and sought-after place to live with easy access to both the capital and countryside. We’re delighted to deliver more affordable homes for local people to rent or buy and settle in an area where they may not previously have been able to.’

Kevin Marshall, Director, Star Contractors Ltd said:

‘Star Contractors Ltd are delighted to have been chosen to work with Catalyst to deliver phase two of the Kite Meadows development. Our ongoing relationship with Catalyst is of great strategic importance to us as a company and we look forward to delivering high quality, sustainable housing in this much sought-after area, to enhance the community and realise the full potential of the Kite Meadows site.’
