This scheme is located on the former cattle market site close to the heart of Stratford-upon-Avon. Known as Arden Quarter, it provides high quality intergenerational town centre living, creating a new identity for this important site on the edge of this historic market town.

Mixed-tenure accommodation delivers 29 new houses, 58 general needs apartments, 102 extra care apartments and an element of retail space. The higher density extra care accommodation is located in a prime position to the southern edge of the development, presenting a series of striking gable forms. There is a transition in scale towards the northern part of the site where two and three storey houses are arranged in streets with a charming new mews.

The landscape design creates a delightful new public realm which includes a pocket park adjacent to the main entrance, a community play space, public café terraces and beautiful private gardens as well as a roof terrace to the extra care building.
