Newland Homes has begun redeveloping land at the former Cattle Market in Station Road, Andoversford, Gloucestershire.

The site, opposite the Cheltenham based developers’ recently completed and award winning Coln Gardens development, is comprised of 17 new homes, a mixture of 4 and 5 bedroom detached homes and a 3 bedroom bungalow available on the open market, with 8 affordable houses and bungalows.

The former Cattle Market played an important role in Andoversford’s history, but has been vacant and increasingly derelict since it closed in 2005. As a privately owned market, it attracted large numbers of traders and livestock for well over 100 years and only closed when it was effectively superseded by a modern, new market outside Cirencester. Owned by Andoversford Sale Yard Company Ltd with the shares held by local farmers and agricultural estates, the market was operated by Tayler & Fletcher and more recently by Voyce Pullin which now runs the Cirencester Market.

Working together with the Parish Council and District Council, Newland built upon the success of their earlier development. Says Andrew Billings, Newland Homes Land Director “It’s great to be involved as a developer on the strength of our track record and approach at a local level.” During his early career, Andrew had worked at the market. He said: “It’s a shame the market closed but worse still that it had become so derelict. It is a special honour for me to be part of this brilliantly designed scheme to give the site a new purpose and make it part of the village again,”

Simon Redmond of Andoversford Parish Council added: “The new development significantly will improve what has been a derelict site in the centre of the village for many years. The Parish Council and residents have been impressed by the way that Newland Homes have involved the parish in the design process from the original drawings and the fact that they have been willing to modify their design in line with residents’ comments. As part of the planning process Newland have generously agreed to build a new bus shelter up at Templefields estate.”
