Leigh-based Ainscough Strategic Land has secured permission for 2,500 new homes in the company’s latest planning success.
The business, which works with land-owners to add value to their holdings through the planning system, has a further nine new land promotion deals in solicitors’ hands, with the potential to deliver a further six thousand new homes.
The latest success, granted by Swindon Borough Council, will allow for a major urban extension of the growing Wiltshire town. Commenting on the approval managing director Rachael Ainscough said:
“There’s been plenty of midnight oil burnt on this permission and I’m delighted for the land-owners and for all our professional colleagues and partners who have worked so hard to help retain our 95% planning success rate.
“Britain’s economic fundamentals remain strong and we need to provide housing for a growing population and to help kick-start our economy as it emerges from lockdown. We remain on the look-out for further opportunities across the UK.”
The Lancashire company currently has 24 live projects across the country, with sites ranging from 80 units to potentially 3,000 for schemes located across the north, midlands and south west.
The latest permission is subject to the standard six week ‘hold off’ period for Judicial Review purposes and the land will be marketed for sale thereafter. Planning consultant Turley acted for ASL on the application.
