92 new affordable homes for repeat client Fortis Living


Pickersleigh Grove

Speller Metcalfe has completed a major development for repeat client Fortis Living (now Platform Housing Group) at the foot of the Malvern Hills in Worcestershire.

Procured through the Homes England agency Delivery Partner Panel 3 (DPP3) Framework, the scheme was delivered across six phases resulting in 92 new affordable homes that have replaced 42 post-war homes which sat at Pickerlesigh Grove before being demolished in 2016.

The new homes comprise of a mix of 60 two, three and four-bed houses for shared ownership sale, 8 two and three-bed houses and a further 24 one-bedroom flats for affordable rent.

The team also constructed a children’s play area within the development for use by residents and the wider Pickersleigh community, using re-purposed timber from the trees felled on site.

Pickersleigh Grove is the largest land-led scheme that Fortis Living has embarked on to date, and the biggest housing scheme for Speller Metcalfe. As a local contractor based less than a mile from site it was an unmissable opportunity to enhance the local area and deliver much needed homes for the Malvern community.
