Join us at Derwenthorpe, the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust development in York

This guided tour will look at the creation of a new garden village designed to encourage sustainable communities.

Over 100 years ago, Joseph Rowntree built York’s garden village of New Earswick as a model community. A century later, Derwenthorpe was created to emulate this model, providing much needed new housing in the city. The development explores three themes focusing around creating sustainable communities:

  • Environmental performance – practical solutions to deliver low carbon homes:
  • Environmental behaviours – encouraging and supporting more sustainable lifestyles: and
  • Community development – addressing barriers to digital inclusion and creating shared spaces with the community for the community.

As a CIH member, you can join our exclusive tour to explore this new development designed to provide attractive, affordable, eco-friendly homes in a digitally inclusive, mixed-tenure community.

The tour will be led by Matt Lewer, JRHT service transformation lead and vice lead CIH Yorkshire and Humber.
