Speaking about the project, Richard Rogers said: â€˜Our partnership with George Wimpey has given us an opportunity to take a fresh look at housing design.
â€˜By working closely together, we have been able to develop an approach which links construction closely to design, giving real value to the homeowner.
â€˜The scheme at Oxley Woods is highly flexible and sustainable and will, we hope, provide homes for a diverse community for many generations to come.â€™
Early guides put the market value of the houses at Â£199,995 for a two-bedroom property and Â£249,995 for a three-bedroom home.
