Project Award: The Gates

We are delighted to announce our latest project – The Gates, which is being delivered by Jarvis Contracting in partnership with settle, to provide 119 homes in the Bidwell area of Houghton Regis. This is a land acquisition and turnkey development, assembled using the strength of the Jarvis brand to deliver much needed affordable homes.

The development is funded through the Homes England’s Affordable Housing Fund 21/26, and is an important step as part of settle’s corporate plan commitment to build 1,500 homes (90% of which will be affordable) by 2024.

The scheme will be delivered in 3 phases, providing a mixture of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes – 45 will be available for affordable rent and 74 for shared ownership.

“ The Gates scheme represents a very exciting development brought together through our Partnership‘s brand. It will create a vibrant new community of family homes, as an example of well-considered place-making for settle, with whom we look forward to continuing our successful working relationship with, building on the achievements so far at the ongoing regeneration of John Barker Place”.

— Jarvis Contracting CEO, Mark Doyle

“We’re delighted to continue our relationship with Jarvis and work in partnership with them on this development. The Gates is a great example of our commitment to work with partners and residents, to provide good quality homes and services that respond to the needs of our residents, along with investing in neighbourhoods and communities.”
