The multi-phase development of North Town in Aldershot is a seven-year neighbourhood renewal project. It is being developed by First Wessex Housing Group in partnership with Rushmoor Borough Council.
This large-scale regeneration project will transform an estate, originally built in the 1950s, with hundreds of sustainable houses, apartments, maisonettes and bungalows.
The aim of this development is to create a safe and modern environment for the close-knit community of North Town, and to enhance and sustain a happy, healthy and thriving community for future generations.
Once complete, all homes will be built to the latest modern design and environmental standards – comfortable, economical, eco-friendly homes – with courtyard communities and gardens.
The two current phases will provide a total of 243 homes when completed, offering two, three and four bedroom houses, two bedroom maisonettes, and one and two bedroom apartments, along with retail units and a community centre. Phase 1 consists of 159 homes, with Phase 2 consisting of the remaining 84 homes.
