Our approach to regeneration means we’ve delivered affordable homes in a variety of innovative ways including transforming brownfield sites and pursuing land-led opportunities.

By taking on more land-led opportunities we’re able to have more control over the delivery of regeneration projects. Brownfield sites which are often derelict, provide great opportunities for us to build affordable, new homes in areas where there’s a huge need. We’re able to transform these sites to improve housing supply and create communities where people love to live.



In 2019 we redeveloped the former Delfords factory site in Dovercourt, Harwich to provide 66 affordable, new homes. The factory had been vacant for 10 years. Many of its buildings were in disrepair and the local community was experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour. It’s now a thriving neighbourhood and is helping to transform the lives of its residents.


Great Waltham

We demolished two old Airey houses to create four modern homes in Barrack Lane, Great Waltham. The three houses and one bungalow were made available to the residents of the former Airey homes as well as people with a local connection to the area.


Sible Hedingham

We built 38 new homes on the site of a derelict factory in Sible Hedingham, Halstead. The unused plot of land was converted into much needed affordable homes for rent.

We’re redeveloping further brownfield sites across Essex including homes for social rent. You can find out about the homes available now at our developments in the new home section.
