It’s been a busy few weeks for the Catesby Estates Land Team with another successful sale completed.

Redrow have purchased a 12.7 acre site located on land east of Ivel Road, Shefford.

Earlier this year, Central Bedfordshire Council followed Planning Officers’ advice and granted outline planning permission for 90 new homes including 35% affordable housing, along with land for either a new primary school or should the alternative preferred site come forward, retention as community woodland.

The site was an allocation in the emerging Local Plan, and the planning application was led by our-house Planning Manager, Dawn Adams.

Richard Janes of Savills acted for the landowner in the sale of the site.

David Harper, Area Land Director at Catesby Estates said; “This is our second scheme in Shefford having previously sold land to Bovis Homes in 2016.

“We have worked with Redrow on a number of other sites, and they are one of the UK’s largest housebuilders with a reputation for delivering high quality new homes.  We are pleased to be working with them again, and continuing our longstanding relationship.”
