Our latest Development update

Posted on the 10th February 2023

We’re delighted to be building 125 affordable homes in Bishop’s Stortford, as part of our Joint Venture with developer Countryside. 

The development, at the St Michael’s Hurst site, will see a total of 208 homes built in this latest phase. 

Martyn Jones, Executive Director for Development and Sales, said: “We’re really pleased to be delivering this next phase of quality new homes at St Michael’s Hurst. 

“Our aim is to provide more affordable homes than the original planning permission required, which should help a greater number of people as we all work through the cost-of-living crisis.” 

Verity MacMahon, Countryside, Managing Director, Home Counties North, comments “We’ve got a strong track record of working with a range of partners to deliver housing that truly meets the needs of the local community. We’re pleased to be working with Paradigm on the latest phase at St Michael’s Hurst to continue delivering high quality, affordable and sustainable new homes.”

The development will include a range of one and two-bedroom affordable apartments, and two, three and four-bedroom houses will be developed as affordable homes – 73 for affordable rent and 52 as shared ownership. 

The private properties will be a mix of three and four-bedroom homes.
