Plans approved for 340 new homes

Vistry Group has secured planning approval to build another 340 new homes in the third and final phase of the Twigworth Green development near Gloucester.

Vistry plans to provide 205 new three and four-bedroom houses for private sale under the Bovis Homes and Linden Homes brands, and 135 affordable properties for local people through rent or shared ownership, including apartments and houses.

The housebuilder is already constructing 238 new properties at the development, off the A38 Tewkesbury Road.

The wider development at Twigworth Green will feature a total of 725 new homes and includes a local centre, which is already open, plus plans for public open space and sports pitches.

Detailed proposals for the final phase of homes, which will occupy a 23-acre site accessed from the existing development, were given the go-ahead by Tewkesbury Borough Council in July.

Supriya Ray, managing director of Vistry Cotswolds, said: "We have worked very closely with Tewkesbury Borough Council to ensure that our detailed plans for these 340 new homes meet with their approval and help address the housing needs of the area.

"We are now keen to get on with the construction process, so we can deliver not only a collection of private homes, but also a wide range of affordable properties that will give local people the chance to secure a new home in the village and stay within easy reach of their family and friends."

The new phase will feature a focal green space with a children's playground, another informal public open space, tree-lined streets and a network of cycle ways and footpaths linking the site internally and with the wider development.
