Construction is expected to start this autumn on the 54-acre site which will also include a new school and sporting facilities both on and off site.
The scheme will have a gross development value of £200m and the land will be acquired in phases over a five-year period in conjunction with Homes England.
Inland Homes Chief Executive Stephen Wicks said: “We are very pleased to have secured planning permission for the Gardiners Park Village site and to be working with Homes England to deliver much needed affordable homes.
“Acquiring and taking brownfield sites through the planning system for development lies at the heart of what we do.
“Inland Homes has once again demonstrated its skill and tenacity in being able to deliver planning on these complex sites in order to create sustainable communities and homes for the future.”
