150 new homes set for Eastwood following land deal

St. Modwen has completed the sale of a residential parcel of land in Eastwood, Nottingham, to national housebuilder Persimmon Homes.

The 17-acre former manufacturing site will see Persimmon Homes deliver 150 new family homes and significant areas of public open space after St. Modwen secured outline planning permission in 2018.

The former brownfield site has seen St. Modwen carry out extensive remediation and decontamination works, including the demolition of the former Beamlight Automotive Seating factory which closed its doors in 2012. Persimmon Homes will carry out further infrastructure and earthworks to enable the delivery of its new homes.

The development is set to provide a range of properties from starter homes through to larger family homes.

Nick Whittingham, Development Director at St. Modwen, said: “We’re delighted to have secured planning permission for this former industrial site and to be bringing forward new family homes through this sale to Persimmon Homes. Eastwood is an established and thriving local community with lots to offer to homebuyers and it’s fantastic to see this development coming to fruition.”

Neil Follows, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes Nottingham, said: “We are very pleased to have finalised the land purchase in Eastwood. This is an exciting opportunity to create much-needed new homes for a range of buyers in a sought-after area.

“Colliers Way, as the development will be called, will feature a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom homes.”

The sale aligns with St. Modwen’s strategy of unlocking value in its sites and providing quality residential land to third-party housebuilders; the developer sold £30m of residential land in 2019.

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate.
