Catesby Estates plc have successfully completed the sale of a residential development site in Wilstead, Bedfordshire to Bellway Homes Limited (Northern Home Counties).

Outline planning consent was granted at Appeal in March 2017, following refusal at local level by Bedford Borough Council.

The 7 acre site located off Whitworth Way in the village of Wilstead, Bedfordshire has consent for up to 70 new homes with 40% affordable housing provision.

The site is a sustainable location for residential development, positioned on the edge of an established residential area and within short walking distance of Wilstead village centre, providing a range of services and facilities.

Catesby Estates worked closely with local stakeholders to design a scheme that was sympathetic to its surroundings, and provided significant public open space with structured tree and landscaping planting.
