Leading mixed-tenure developer Countryside Partnerships has completed the acquisition of land at Shirebrook in Derbyshire from Homes England.
The site, to be known as Pleasley View, will provide 265 homes and will form the final phase of Homes England’s Brookvale development.
68 of the new homes will be built for Sigma, a leading provider of private rented housing, whilst 51 affordable homes will be built for and managed by registered provider Platform. The remaining 146 homes will be built for open market sale and sold via Linden Homes (part of Vistry Group).
From the outset, Brookvale has been designed to follow Building for a Healthy Life principles, delivering high quality new housing within in a landscape setting.
At Pleasley View, Countryside Partnerships’ landscaping proposals will ensure a minimum 20% biodiversity net gain is achieved, with a wide variety of landscape features and habitats proposed alongside the retention of mature trees.
Work is expected to begin early 2023, with the homes completed within four years.
Stephen Teagle, Chief Executive of Countryside Partnerships, said:
“Pleasley View builds on our established and successful relationship with Homes England in the North and we’re looking forward to delivering these new homes and creating a high quality new community to live in. The development is a brilliant example of our mixed-tenure approach; by working with quality partners like Sigma and Platform, we can offer a broad range of tenures, giving a wider group of people the opportunity to either own or rent a quality new home in their local community.”
Jon Irvine, Development Director for the North at Homes England, said:
“The completion of this deal with Countryside Partnerships is significant milestone in the completion of our Brookvale development, continuing significant investment into the area.
“We’re delighted that the new homes at Pleasley View will be built to Building for a Healthy Life design principles and secure significant environmental benefits, ensuring quality and sustainable living for the new community.”
