Crest Nicholson was appointed as lead developer to design and deliver this new Garden Village in Wokingham on behalf of the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO). As a part of the Ministry of Defence, it was crucial to achieve a quality and legacy-led development.
Arborfield is testament to Crest Nicholson’s ability to work closely with a local planning authority. By committing to the delivery of necessary community facilities such as new schools, shops and areas of play; we brought forward this planning permission much earlier than ever anticipated.
Crest Nicholson facilitated the delivery of the secondary school and a country park before the occupation of any dwellings at Arborfield, and this commitment has ensured that a place has been created from the outset; encouraging purchasers to move to the new development early on. The early delivery of enabling infrastructure has significantly enhanced delivery rates, with three active Crest Nicholson outlets and a further two third party outlets. Soon, Arborfield will be delivering over 250 dwellings each year.
