Catesby Estates has successfully completed the sale of the final phase of a residential development site in Longhedge, Salisbury to the Vistry Group, who will be working in partnership with Radian Housing Association.
The site includes 65 homes with 40% affordable housing, along with pedestrian and cycle routes connecting the new homes with the new neighbourhood centre, existing village and wider area.
Using delegated powers Wiltshire Council granted outline planning permission earlier this year.
This is an extension to a 60 acre site for 673 homes and public open space that Catesby previously promoted and sold to Bovis Homes in 2014.
Catesby carried out extensive public consultation and worked closely with the Parish Council which resulted in a uplift in the allocation from 450 homes to 673 along with increased community facilities for local residents.
Councillor Ian McLennan from Wiltshire Council and Laverstock and Ford Parish said “Catesby are the exception. They engaged with me and my parish, from the outset of the Longhedge masterplan. Together, with the support of the landowner, they listened and helped deliver much needed community facilities and a great place for people to live.”
Andy Wright, Senior Land Manager at Catesby Estates said; "This is a challenging period for the housebuilding industry and wider economy.”
“This has been a real team effort to ensure the completion of this deal, highlighting how well as a team and business we have pulled together during these extraordinary times.”
