Welcome to Whitenap

Whitenap is the largest of the three sites on The Ashfield Estate. While it will comprise up to 1300 new homes with workspace, some retail and associated social infrastructure, it also aims to tackle the key issues at the heart of The Estate’s vision.

Living and Working

Mixed use schemes and developments make more sense by enabling a choice on the part of residents, to live their lives sustainably by meeting their daily needs on foot.

Properties

Built by The Ashfield Partnership, Whitenap is a large community of 1,300 beautiful new homes, workplaces and public facilities. View the properties that are available below.  

Place-Making

Place-making is about designing an ergonomic but beautiful built environment which engenders, on the part of residents and occupiers, a sense of civic pride. This ambition, along with the other aims making up The Estate's vision will inform how we work together through community engagement to shape Whitenap.
