Residential Development Opportunity For Sale by Informal Tender
The first phase of development land was 5.06 Ha (12.50 acres). Bellway secured the necessary planning consent in November 2013 and are part way through delivering 141 homes. Alongside the new homes, site infrastructure has been provided to allow for the subsequent Phase 2 development to begin.
Phase 2 of residential land comprises 6.68 Ha (16.5 acres). It is expected that the selected developer will secure necessary planning consent, implement the scheme and provide site infrastructure for any subsequent development.
The target date for commencement for phase 2 is Q3 2018. The County Council will seek to agree with the chosen developer an appropriate mechanism to ensure that Phase 2 is delivered to an agreed specification and timetable.
The vendor’s preference is for the phase 2 to continue the development principle from Phase 1 of lower density family housing.
The County Council require a tendering process for each parcel of land which is brought forward, this is to ensure best value for the public purse. We can confirm each developer will be considered on their individual merit in relation to the phase which is offered and not on any historical connection to the development.
The site forms part of a larger area comprising some 11.8ha of land which is allocated for residential development in the adopted Ashfield Local Plan (2002).
Bellway had an application granted in 2013 for Phase 1 which consisted of the proposed construction of 141 dwellings and public open Space together with associated parking, garaging, road and sewer Infrastructure works (V/2013/0409).
The site previously benefited from a resolution to grant detailed permission (2006/0717) for 382 dwellings secured by Morris Homes on the entire site in late 2006. The application has subsequently been withdrawn.
