The next step in Brackley’s expansion moved a little closer after a developer purchased land with existing permission to build 350 homes.

Catalyst Housing has bought 14 hectares of land south of Turweston Road.

Catalyst is now working with its planning consultants and project architects to submit a reserved matters planning application to South Northamptonshire Council this autumn. The intention is to start on site in summer 2017.

The homes will be a mixture of terraced, semi-detached and detached properties. In addition there will landscaping and open spaces improvements, as well as new pedestrian access routes.

The developer says more than half of the 350 homes will be affordable, comprising both affordable rent and shared ownership properties. The rest, for private sale.

Geoff Bryant, senior land manager at Catalyst, said: “We are delighted to have secured this site to build the new homes needed locally.

“The development has the big plus of being close to the thriving market town of Brackley and being surrounded by beautiful countryside; and Catalyst is committed to making it a great community for residents.”

The consultants supporting Catalyst on this development are legal firm TLT LLP, Hester Architects, engineering practice Campbell Reith, and planners White Young Green.
