Grainger picks Redrow for £55m housing scheme

Aaron Morby 11 years ago

Grainger has selected Redrow Homes to deliver phase two of its Berewood development in Hampshire.

The £55m second phase of the 2,550 home development will comprise 250 homes. In line with the outline planning consent, 40% of the homes will be affordable, with work expected to start in the new year.

The plot for phase two sits within the ‘Garden Suburb’ section of Berewood, where design, density, material choice and house styles reflect the traditional ‘arts and crafts’ style of the original garden suburbs.

Phase two will also see Grainger install infrastructure that will service the housing plots, including improvements to the Milk Lane and London Road junction.

John Allan, Managing Director of Redrow Homes (Southern Counties), said: “The acquisition of land for approximately 250 plots is an important milestone in our plans to expand Redrow’s newly created Southern Counties division.

“We are looking to grow to an output of around 500 new homes per annum over the next three to five years in an area that includes the counties of Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire and West Sussex.

“We would hope to secure a detailed planning consent for the Berewood homes by Spring 2014 with a view to making a site start in early summer.”

Grainger and Redrow will work together closely to deliver the homes according to the consented Design Code, in order to adhere to the vision of the Berewood Masterplan that was devised with Savills and ADAM Architecture.

Berewood development

The 2,550 homes Berewood development comprises 13 phases, and will be completed over several years.

Phase 1 of 194 homes is currently under construction by Bloor Homes and the first homes are being marketed.

The project will also deliver 100,000 sq m commercial space, two new primary schools and a number of community facilities including a community centre, health and leisure facilities, public open spaces and sports pitches.

John Beresford, Development Director at Grainger, said: “Redrow’s design submission interpreted our design codes perfectly and is very much in keeping with the vision of Berewood that we have promised to deliver.

“The master plan at Berewood has been developed in a way that enables the whole development to be delivered in a joined-up manner.

“This long term approach that Grainger takes will create a neighbourhood which echoes many of the qualities of the traditional English Garden Suburb. Redrow shares our ethos and understands our vision.”
