PRP is working with Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust (JRHT) to replace Red Lodge, an existing care home/sheltered housing scheme in New Earswick, York. The scheme will provide 140 new apartments/care beds for older people and also includes refurbishment of the listed Folk Hall building. The housing and amenities will give the village created by Rowntree in 1904 a vibrant new social heart.

The new housing is arranged in smaller courtyards and reflects the arts and crafts style of the listed Folk Hall surrounding housing. Beautifully landscaped community open space includes lawns, allotments and a public square.
