Bellway has announced a new land deal that will pave the way for 127 new homes in Tongham, near Aldershot.
Bellway South London has purchased a parcel of land at Manor Farm, on the southeastern edge of Aldershot, and will be building 127 new homes at a development which will be known as Admiral Park.
A hybrid planning application for a wider development of 254 homes was approved in January 2018, and detailed proposals are currently being considered by Guildford Borough Council. Bellway’s plans for the development include substantial areas of open space, including a children’s play area to the north of the site and the retention of a wooded area to the southern edge.
Daniel Williamson, Head of Sales for Bellway South London, said: “We are naturally very pleased to have finalised the deal to buy a parcel of land at Manor Farm. With outline planning permission already in place, we have drawn up detailed plans for a range of homes designed for people at various stages of the property ladder, and we hope our reserved matters application will be approved in due course.”
As part of the planning agreement for the development, a proportion of the new homes will be designated as affordable housing for local people, while financial contributions will be made towards education provisions and the highway network in the area.
If the reserved matters application is approved, Bellway hopes to release the first plots for sale in spring next year.
