Commercial property consultants, Kirkby Diamond, recently announced that a site in Milton Keynes with outline planning permission for 120 new homes has been acquired by Dandara, an independent housebuilder.
The 8.72-acre Wavendon Lodge greenfield development site is situated at the eastern end of the Milton Keynes strategic land allocation (SLA).
The site has permission for 120 new homes comprising a mix of houses and apartments and the affordable housing requirement is 30 per cent.
The wider area is set to see more than 1,100 homes on the nearby Wavendon triangle development site, along with primary and secondary schools and a local centre, as the city expands further east.
The proposed dwellings will be a mix of sizes and there will also be an on-site play space and landscaping.
The site will have access from the newly constructed spine road, neighbouring the Eagle’s Rest development which is planned to provide a small neighbourhood centre and a primary school.
Kirkby Diamond Senior Partner and Head of Planning and Development Andrew Wright said: “We are very pleased to announce the sale of this excellent site to leading housebuilder Dandara, which has an impressive track record of delivering high-quality homes.
“It is a very well located residential development site on the edge of the urban area, with excellent connectivity and good access to local services. Wavendon Lodge is situated at the eastern end of the Milton Keynes SLA which is currently being developed.
"When complete, the SLA will provide up to 2,500 new homes, three new schools, retail and neighbourhood centres, play areas and extensive areas of public open space.
“Milton Keynes is one of the fastest-growing towns in the UK and has exceptionally high levels of employment. In recent years, economic growth has been the highest in the UK."
