About Vistry Group

The Vistry Group was formed in January 2020 following Bovis Homes’ acquisition of Linden Homes and Galliford Try Partnerships businesses.

In November 2022 Vistry acquired Countryside Partnerships and became the top housebuilder in England by volume. The expanded Countryside Partnerships, working with local authorities, housing associations and investors to deliver affordable housing, is now the largest private sector provider of affordable housing.

Vistry has an HBF five-star rating and was awarded Large Housebuilder of the Year in 2021, testament to an ethos of doing the right thing across all operations and the company values of integrity, caring and quality.

A new range of high quality homes has been designed to meet the anticipated Future Homes Standard 2025. These are gas-free, and, through a fabric-first approach, seek to reduce energy demand within homes in the first place, as well as featuring air-source heat pumps and heat recovery systems.

Vistry Group have a dedicated in-house sustainability team working to improve practices and materials across sites. By the end of 2025, Vistry Group will be diverting 100% of waste from its sites away from landfill, with an overall reduction of waste of 20% per plot compared to 2021. By 2025 Vistry are aiming to achieve a 75-80% reduction in CO2e (Carbon Dioxide equivalent, the metric measure used to compare emissions) compared to 2021.

Vistry recognises the high environmental and social value of green and blue infrastructure, and, ahead of the national mandate, is designing in a minimum of 10% Biodiversity Net Gain into all its new communities. Vistry works in partnership with a number of wildlife groups, including the Bumblebee Trust, British Hedgehog Preservation Society and the Bat Conservation Trust, to help protect these important species through, for example, the inclusion of bee bricks, hedgehog highways and bat-friendly lighting schemes and foraging routes.
