P+HS have successfully worked with Home Group for many years on a variety of projects across Yorkshire, Cumbria and the North East of England.
Our scheme at Wigton, Woolner Brook for Persona Homes, is designed to provide 110 new dwellings with a mix of house types appealing to a wide range of people. The accommodation ranges from 2 bed bungalows to 4 bed detached houses. Allerdale Borough Council agreed that 22 affordable dwellings would be provided. These include 8 x 2 bed bungalows (all social rent) and 14 x 2 bed houses ( 7 affordable sale and 7 social rent).
We created a mix of house types bespoke to the site, including double fronted properties to the south and west and split level designs to accommodate significant level changes at the centre of the site. In line with Persona's desire to 'build homes not houses and put customers at the heart of everything', our contemporary designs provide choice for modern living using a mixture of open plan and more traditional cellular arrangements internally.
The first phase of the scheme providing 48 dwellings has proved extremely popular and phase two is now underway with an expected completion date of 2023.
The scheme is being built by local contractor Thomas Armstrong
