Kingswood Homes will invest more than £4million in the Blackburn community after acquiring the final 64-acre piece in the puzzle of the Gib Lane Masterplan.
The land, located west of Moorland Drive, covers phases four to 11 of Kingswood’s Green Hills development in Feniscowles.
A hybrid planning application was granted in May for 435 homes, including existing contemporary style properties, along with a range of more traditional looking designs to cater for a diverse mix of purchasers.
Kingswood will support the continued growth of the neighbourhood by investing £4 million in the community. The SME developer is providing land valued at more than £3 million for a new primary school and has pledged £850,000 towards new primary school places. The company will also make a £150,000 contribution towards provision of off-site affordable housing.
Kingswood Homes Managing Director Paul Jones said: “The vision of a sustainable village in Blackburn has become a reality at Green Hills. It’s fast become a desirable neighbourhood where people aspire to live. We’ve welcomed more than 125 homeowners to date and have committed to delivering hundreds more homes with this latest land acquisition.”
Work on these homes is due to begin this autumn and is expected to take more than seven years to complete.
