We’re working on all four phases of Littlemore Park, in Oxford, that will deliver 270 affordable homes on a former NHS site.

Of the new homes, 102 will be ready in late 2021 through phase one of the development and a another 168 homes will be delivered over the next three phases. The project is due to complete in summer 2023 and is being delivered in partnership with Oxford City Council and contractor Hill Partnerships.

The development, which is 100% affordable, brings much-needed homes for social rent and shared ownership to the city. The area will include landscaped open space, natural play equipment and public art.

In 2016 we bought the site from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. To reflect its history and to support our healthcare workers, NHS workers will get priority to buy the shared ownership homes.

Located on Armstrong Road, the development has been named Newman Place, after Saint John Henry Newman, with the name of each block of new homes also reflecting a notable person with connection to Littlemore, including Atwater House, Underwood House and Allin House.
