Fenn Wright complete on significant land sale in Ipswich
Fenn Wright are delighted to confirm completion of a significant land sale to the north of Ipswich in Westerfield.
Acting on behalf of private clients, Fenn Wright recently exchanged and completed on the sale of 88 acres of land adjoining Henley Road. The land has been sold to Crest Nicholson and will comprise the western half of their Henley Gate scheme.
Henley Gate, forms part of the wider Ipswich Garden Suburb, a strategic allocation of land to the north of Ipswich for the development of approximately 3,500 homes. Outline planning permission was granted in January 2020 for the Henley Gate scheme which will include a total of 1,100 houses as well as incorporating a new country park of about 75 acres, a new school and other community and shopping facilities.
A reserved matters application has been submitted to Ipswich Borough Council for the first phase of housing, infrastructure and the country park.
Alistair Mitchell, Partner at Fenn Wright commented “It took a great deal of time and patience to negotiate and conclude this transaction for all parties concerned. However, we are delighted to have completed the sale on behalf of our clients and wish Crest Nicholson every success with their scheme which we look forward to seeing unfold over the coming years”.
In addition to this, Fenn Wright are also marketing a further site in Westerfield, opposite one of the intended entrances to the proposed country park within the Henley Gate development.
The site, which fronts onto Westerfield Road (B1077), comprises a greenfield site together with a former builder’s yard to the rear and extends to approximately 7.45 acres (3.015 hectares). The site benefits from outline planning permission for 50 market houses and 25 affordable homes, with indicative layout plans and a full information pack available upon request.
We are already receiving strong interest in the site and for more details please contact Alistair Mitchell on 01473 232701 or you can find out more here.
