Catesby Estates has successfully completed the sale of a residential development site in Flitch Green, Essex to Dandara.
Located off Station Road, the greenfield site was granted outline planning consent by Uttlesford District Council for 160 Net Zero Ready homes including 40% affordable housing.
The site also includes an office hub to provide flexible working space and a new countryside park with allotments, community orchard and new play areas.
The onsite cycling and walking trails link to the Flitch Way which provides 15 miles of flat, traffic free space for walking, cycling and horse riding between Braintree and Bishops Stortford.
Despite a challenging planning environment, the Catesby team managed to achieve a local level consent for this non-allocated site and secure a buyer in less than 18 months.
David Harper, Area Land Director at Catesby Estates said; “Achieving a planning consent and sale so quickly for the landowner is testament to the hard work and skill of the in-house Catesby team.”
“This site is located in a highly sustainable location, and we are pleased to have worked with Dandara once again who have a reputation for delivering award winning new homes.”
The following helped ensure the sale went smoothly: Philip Medford from Eversheds representing Catesby Estates; acting for the landowners – Nick Harper of Hawkspur Chartered Surveyors and Graeme Provan and Ben Stapleton of Tolhurst Fisher solicitors.
