Drakes Place


The development of Drakes Place transformed a long-vacant brownfield site that was owned by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA,) creating 75 much-needed new homes. This includes 49 homes for private sale, 26 for affordable rent and six for shared ownership, split across a mix of contemporary one and two bedroom flats and two and three bedroom houses.

  • 49 homes for private sale
  • 26 homes for affordable rent

The affordable units were delivered in partnership with our housing association partner Catalyst.

All properties meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes

Energy Efficient

Wates secured the project in open competition through the HCA’s Delivery Partner Panel. A high standard of energy efficiency has also been achieved across all properties, which were designed to meet Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Drakes Place provides high quality new homes in Aylesbury, regenerating the old Bearbrook site that had stood vacant for years.
