Newland Homes acquires former Leckhampton nursery for low and zero carbon homes

Newland Homes has announced the successful acquisition of a former plant nursery site on Kidnappers Lane, Leckhampton from the Robert Hitchins Group.

The Gloucester-based housebuilder plans to build 22 low carbon and zero carbon properties on the site, which will be a mix of detached open market houses and affordable homes.

Newland Homes said properties will be constructed to high standards, using local sourced materials, and they will exceed current regulatory requirements for sustainability.

Plans suggest the market homes will use renewable energy technologies and features commonly found in many other Newland Homes schemes, including solar panels and air source heat pumps, to meet zero carbon status and to provide a net gain in energy consumption with the property providing more energy than it consumes.

Andrew Billings, land director at Newland Homes, said: "Leckhampton is a very popular location to the south of Cheltenham and we have an exciting new development in the pipeline here, which combined with the new secondary school currently being constructed near the site, will result in another much sought-after Newland Homes scheme.

"A Reserved Matters application has been submitted and we hope to receive the final go ahead for these 22 homes, which will blend with the character of this semi-rural location.

"The properties have been designed to reflect the agricultural history of the area, however they will include modern design features as well as eco-conscious and sustainable aspects such as air source heat pumps and solar panels."
