Busy Start to 2018 for the Catesby Land Team

 

The Catesby Estates team has had a busy start to 2018, with three sales completed and a further 3 in the pipeline.

The average affordable housing provision was 38% across all three sites demonstrating our recognition of the current housing crisis and the need to provide a wide range of housing.

Alfold, Surrey to CALA Homes (South Home Counties) Ltd.

Outline planning consent was granted in April 2016, by Waverley Borough Council.

The 6.5 acre site located off Loxwood Road in the village of Alford has consent for up to 55 new homes with 40% affordable housing provision.

In recommending the application for approval, Officers accepted that the Council could not demonstrate a five year supply of housing land, and the development would be sustainable, delivering a number of benefits for Alfold village and the wider area with additional public open space and children’s play area.

Wilstead, Bedfordshire to Bellway Homes Limited (Northern Home Counties).

Outline planning consent was granted at Appeal in March 2017, following refusal at local level by Bedford Borough Council.

The 7 acre site located off Whitworth Way in the village of Wilstead, Bedfordshire has consent for up to 70 new homes with 40% affordable housing provision.

The site is a sustainable location for residential development, positioned on the edge of an established residential area and within short walking distance of Wilstead village centre, providing a range of services and facilities.

Abingdon, Oxfordshire to David Wilson Homes.

Outline planning consent was granted in February 2018 by the Vale of White Horse District Council’s Planning Committee, who unanimously voted to follow the Planning Officer’s recommendations for approval.

The 15 acre site located off Dunmore Road was removed from the Green Belt and allocated for residential development in the adopted Local Plan.  The site has consent for 200 new homes with 35% affordable housing provision.

This new residential scheme was sensitively designed and has a range of community benefits including, highways improvements, public open space and children’s play areas.
