Work continues apace as part of L&Q Estates’ and their development partner Milton Keynes Council’s plans to create a sustainable community at Whitehouse in Milton Keynes.
L&Q Estates has sold over 10 acres of land to the Milton Keynes office of Bellway Homes (Northern Home Counties).
The site in Whitehouse is situated in the Western Expansion Area and will lead to the creation of 175 properties.
The mix of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes and apartments are included as part of a scheme which will, in total, provide 4,400 new high-quality homes.
The site purchased by Bellway Homes was sold on a fully-serviced basis which has involved L&Q Estates delivering new roads, services and utilities, as part of our role as a master developer.
Josh Hughes, Development Manager at L&Q Estates, said: “This is another important land sale delivering more housing within the Western Expansion area at Milton Keynes, and building on the investment in infrastructure, schools and open space made by the Council and L&Q Estates over the last 10 years.
“The significant investment from L&Q Estates along with the various schools, parks, play areas and health facilities which are already provided at Whitehouse are helping to make the land parcels particularly sought after.
“Earlier in the year, we sold six parcels of land at Whitehouse totalling 20 acres for 223 housing units to the Vistry Group and 139 housing units to Crest Nicholson. We are expecting this level of interest and activity to continue well into 2022.”
Paul Smits, Managing Director of Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: “This key acquisition of land in Milton Keynes further demonstrates the commitment we have to meeting the housing needs of the area, following on from our two residential developments in Wavendon, plus the recent progress made at both Tattenhoe Park and in Greenleys.
“This 10-acre site will provide a further 175 new homes to Milton Keynes, and Bellway is naturally pleased to have worked alongside L&Q Estates on the project to secure the scheme.
“We will now look to push forward with the submission of a reserved matters planning application, with a view to starting work on the new housing in Spring 2022.”
