Hampton Park is a new housing scheme located within the Bushbury area of Wolverhampton, based on the site of the former Northicote School. WV Living appointed us as a partner to deliver the 184 low carbon homes compromising 164 houses & 20 flats.
The scheme has been designed by our in-house architecture team indesign and constructed by internal teams at GreenSquareAccord on behalf of City of Wolverhampton Council’s wholly owned housing development company, WV Living.
The development named ‘Hampton Park’, after former headteacher Sir Geoff Hampton, will include 29 affordable rent, and 16 shared ownership homes.
The proposal for 184 dwellings is located on the former Northicote school site, a semi-circular shaped site contained by Northwood Park Road and bordered to the south by Northwood Park. The former school was demolished in 2018 only leaving some trees and grassland on the site before the start of the development.
The development comprises 164 houses with a mix of 2-bed, 3-bed and 4-bed houses. 26 of these will be affordable, being pepper-potted across the site and tenure-blind externally ensuring a successful integration amongst the sale units. The development also comprises 20 flats with a mix of 1-bed and 2-bed flats, all of which will be affordable and featuring a secure communal garden.
Using our Eco-200 closed timber frame panel the development benefits from our fully insulated panels which are delivered to site with factory fitted external cladding attached. The panels are then craned into place by GreenSquareAccord on site. The performance of these Future Homes Standard panels provides residents with an EPC rating of A, lowering the cost of overall energy bills.
The external appearance of the buildings has been designed to respect and preserve the local character of the context of Bushbury, this is why all of the proposed houses are 2 storeys in height and have a domestic appearance featuring pitched roofs with slates and brick facades.
This development has created a wealth of employment opportunities with 28 new apprenticeships planned for the project across all of the trades which is fully supported by our local supply chain.
Councillor Bhupinder Gakhal, Cabinet Member for City Assets and Housing at City of Wolverhampton Council, said: “I am delighted that we have reached this significant milestone at Hampton Park and see another WV Living development get underway.
“The designs that have been created will provide top quality, low carbon homes for the city and developments with strong local links, which residents can be proud of. WV Living continues to support the overall house building programme in the City of Wolverhampton and deliver new homes people will love.”
Sally Saunders, Managing Director at WV Living, adds: “We are delighted to be delivering sustainable homes in this part of Wolverhampton to meet much-needed demand. The homes are of exceptional quality and design and will transform the former school site into a truly desirable and attractive place to live.
“Our developments enhance and create communities, with well-designed good road and transport links to support people to live and work in the city, which will have real long-lasting benefits for the residents. Whether you are a first-time buyer or moving up the property ladder, there is sure to be a home to suit you.”
