Preserving and protecting our heritage is important to so many of us, but conservation and restoration projects can be very costly and complex, with unforeseen problems often popping up along the way. Rising to the challenge, Home Group saw beyond the many potential pitfalls presented by Holmlea Primary School and its listed buildings, with an inspirational plan to lead the way in transformational conservation and urban regeneration.


The iconic restoration project will include the school itself – a traditional red sandstone grade B listed building – the neighbouring janitor's house, also listed, and new homes within the former school playground. All will be sympathetically restored and developed to provide 49 highly aspirational, sought after and much needed homes for affordable rent.
