Land in rural Leicestershire with planning permission for 17 residential properties has been purchased by a developer.
On behalf of its client, Newton LDP has completed the sale of land off Church Causeway to Langton Homes.
The site, in the village of Church Langton, received outline planning permission for 17 homes in May 2019, with reserved matters approval granted two years later.
Richard Foxon, managing director of Newton LDP Ltd, said: “This is a site I know well and have been involved in for some time, initially advising the landowners when they entered into an option agreement with Langton Homes in 2018.
“We are pleased to have negotiated the sale of the land with planning permission for an attractive and sustainable development, which will provide much-needed new homes in this popular part of Leicestershire.”
Ground work has already commenced with Langton Homes anticipating the scheme to be complete in the summer of 2023.
The site will be called Hanbury Gardens and will provide a range of three-, four- and five-bed homes.
Ben Cripps, director of Langton Homes, said: “We are thrilled to be acquiring this land, which will help to meet the council’s requirements for new housing in this area.
“Church Langton is one of the most sought-after villages in Leicestershire, with strong transport links to Market Harborough which is just a short drive away.”
