The original Garden City concept was formed by Ebenezer Howard in 1898. He wanted to combine the best of town and country living by creating self-contained communities surrounded by green, open space. Early versions of this concept include Letchworth Garden City, Welwyn Garden City and Hampstead Garden Suburb - which are still desirable places to live today.
Crest Nicholson has taken inspiration from the Garden city movement by following a set of guiding principles of Character, Legacy and Lifestyle which focus on helping bring Arborfield Green to life.
Arborfield Green is steeped in military history, which still echoes throughout the site today from the original, refurbished buildings to the acres of ancient woodland.
Originally established in 1904 as a Remount Deport during World War One, it was mainly used as a Horse Infirmary, treating injured horses throughout the war. Thirty years later, Arborfield Green was transformed into the Army Technical School for boys and became known as Arborfield Garrison. The Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) also called Arborfield Green home until 2016.Today, the Garrison’s historic buildings are being regenerated to form part of this vibrant, new community. The Horse Infirmary Stables, a listed scheduled monument, will be at the heart of the community. It is being lovingly converted into a vibrant public place for residents, overlooking a new village green. The Moat House, once the Garrison HQ, will be transformed into new offices for the community and the medieval moat will also form a key part of the new landscape.
In building a community that will grow and develop over time, careful consideration has been put into ongoing management and long-term maintenance of Arborfield Green.
That is why Crest Nicholson has created the Community Interest Company (CIC), that is dedicated to managing the new community to see it grow and flourish. Run by professional representatives, the organisation will inform and empower residents about community news and projects, so eventually residents themselves can shape their way of life at Arborfield Green.
Being able to communicate with your neighbours, find out about community events and know what's going on around you will help to shape your everyday life here. That's why there will be a dedicated community website hosted online for you to use.
You can visit the site to discover all of the latest community news and information and you can follow social media links to keep up to date and join in with communal conversations.
Whether you want to save the date for the summer BBQ on the village green, or you want to chat to your neighbours about parent's evening at the local school, you can easily stay in touch with the community around you.
