Newland Homes has secured planning permission for a further development in Hempsted, Gloucester

The Gloucester-based home builder, which was also behind the acclaimed Newark Barns development, will bring 44 much-needed new homes to the area.

The new development, Honeythorn Close, will neighbour Newark Barns and edges onto public open space. Honeythorn Close will take its design cues from Newark Barns pictured. Construction is likely to commence Spring 2017, with homes on sales later in the year.

Tom Sheppard, Design Manager at Newland Homes, said: “We’re very pleased to have been granted planning permission by Gloucester City Council for this new development in Hempsted.

“We consulted and worked with neighbours, Hempsted Residents Association and Planning Officers ahead of submitting our planning application in order to guide and inform improvements to the scheme that people wanted to see.

“It’s a very attractive area and so minimising the impact on the landscape and local archaeological features was very much a considered part of our application. “Our neighbouring site, Newark Barns, has been very successful, with all homes sold this summer. The site was also a finalist in the highly regarded Insider Property Awards this year due to the level of detail we included in the design and creation of the scheme, including the reuse of original building materials on the site.

“Honeythorn Close was identified as part of the emerging City Plan as a suitable site for development and the scheme will contribute much needed homes. It is our intention to develop the site immediately, with affordable housing provision, a large open space area and Section 106 contributions to schools and library of over £260k.”
