Building Communities: BBC Radio 4 feature

Orbit featured in a broadcast on BBC Radio 4 magazine show ‘You & Yours, which explored the barriers to building the homes the country desperately needs.

Orbit’s £40m Cattle Market development, in Stratford-upon-Avon, was one of the sites the programme visited to see how housing associations, private developers and local authorities are using land to build new homes.

The development will see 189 new houses and apartments, including homes for sale, shared ownership, and affordable rent, as well as independent living with care, alongside community amenities such as a play area, pocket park, café and retail unit.

Work is due to begin on site in Spring.

Listen to the broadcast here. Fast forward to 32:30 to hear the housing feature.
