Land deal paves way for 59 Lancaster homes
The housebuilder has purchased 6.5 acres of agricultural land off Ashton Road from Wrenman Homes, with a view to deliver 59 homes.
Lancaster City Council granted planning permission for homes to be built on the site last December. The development will feature eight one-bed apartments, as well as four two-bed, 24 three-bed, 19 four-bed, and four five-bed houses.
Concert Homes expects to start works on site later this year, with construction set to begin in autumn.
Cowburn Land was the agent acting on behalf of both parties in the land sale.
John Beardsell, head of land at Concert Homes, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for Concert Homes to expand our brand across the northern region of our operational area.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with everyone that assisted with this purchase, including Cowburn Land, Wrenman Homes, Napthens Solicitors, and our in-house teams that made this one of the most straightforward and expedient land purchases I’ve had the pleasure to be involved in.”
Managing director, Laurie Lane, added: “The new site at Lancaster will now give us the opportunity to establish our homes and brand in a key market area of the county.”
JMP Architects designed the 59-home scheme. JWPC is planning consultant.
