Housebuilder will deliver schemes for 661 homes in Plymouth, Bristol and Runcorn

Vistry’s partnerships business has won a series of contracts to build more than 600 homes on various sites across England.

The firm said the contracts, worth £165m, would see it build 661 homes alongside housing association and council partners in Bristol, Runcorn and Plymouth.


The contracts include the development of two mixed-tenure schemes, providing 503 homes in total, for Together Housing in Runcorn and Goram Homes in Bristol. Goram is a housing company wholly owned by the city council.

The new work also includes £43m worth of build contracts for an extra care scheme for Halton Housing, a retirement village for Inspired Villages and a mixed-use scheme for the English Cities Fund. These contracts are split across Plymouth and Runcorn.

Vistry said it had also been appointed to a framework of providers by Connected Living, the build-to-rent joint venture set up by Transport for London and Grainger. Last month the JV secured its first planning permission, for 460 homes, on a 3,000-home development pipeline.

The contracts are in addition to Vistry’s appointment yesterday to build out the Plaistow Hub regeneration scheme for council-owned developer Populo Living.


Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive of Vistry (pictured, left), said the schemes demonstrated the “breadth and strength of our established Partnerships business” across mixed tenure regeneration, affordable, private rented and older persons schemes.

He said: “With such strong demand for new homes across a range of tenures, we see continued opportunities for growth at pace, working with our partners and further demonstrating the resilience and capacity of our Partnerships business.”
