Countryside Partnerships secures reserved matters approval for Chippenham homes

Countryside Partnerships has secured reserved matters planning consent to build 329 homes at Langley Park in Chippenham, Wiltshire.

The brownfield site in a former industrial area is now set to be repurposed into a residential scheme of houses and apartments, comprising 50% affordable homes. 

A £40m deal was agreed between Countryside Partnerships and Gresham House Residential Secure Income LP (GH ReSI LP) — a partnership that invests in shared-ownership housing — to deliver 167 of the homes as affordable housing through accessing government grant funding.

GH ReSI LP will deliver 159 shared-ownership and eight affordable rented homes, with the rest of the site being sold on the open market. 

The shared-ownership homes will boast private gardens or balconies, fitted with heat pumps that will ensure the apartments are built to an EPC A standard.

Construction is set to begin later this year with the first builds due to be completed in early 2025.

Darren Dancey, MD at Countryside Partnerships West, commented: “We are delighted to work with Gresham House on this development, which will have a real positive impact for the local community.”

Ben Fry, MD of housing at GH ReSI LP, added: “It is a pleasure to be working with Countryside Partnerships on this scheme, which will help to support economic growth and social well-being in the local area and provide much needed affordable homes.”
