Top ten housebuilder, Keepmoat Homes has purchased greenfield land obtained from Sleaford Property Developments Ltd with plans to deliver 270 two, three and four-bedroom family homes to the market town of Sleaford. With planning permission granted by North Kesteven District Council, the proposed plans will also include a number of affordable rented homes provided by a local housing association.
This exciting new development on the Handley Chase site forms a sustainable urban extension that will see the delivery of 1,450 new homes alongside proposals for a new health centre, community centre, care home and a new school which are expected to service a thriving new community in Sleaford. New sports fields, complete with a pavilion for changing areas, as well as an allotment complete the wider proposals for recreational use within the community.
As part of its commitment to building sustainable communities, Keepmoat Homes has also proposed plans for cycle and pedestrian routes on the purchased land, which will serve as adequate links to nearby Mareham Pastures Local Nature Reserve.
“We’re thrilled to have secured planning consent for the Handley Chase site and look forward to the residential area serving as a wider community in the region, whilst promoting more a sustainable way of living. The development of 270 units seeks to provide first-time buyers, downsizers or renters in the area with expertly constructed new homes designed for modern living,” said Shaun Fielding, Regional Managing Director at Keepmoat Homes.
“We’re pleased to be supporting the local employment economy by attracting tradespeople and suppliers in the area, and we will be holding Meet the Builder events to engage potential contractors to carry out the work needed over the 5-year period.”
Work is set to begin on site at the end of February 2022 and will take 5 years to complete. The first homes are due to launch in October 2022.
