St. Modwen Homes has received full planning permission from North Somerset Council for its Handley Place development in Locking.
The development will deliver 248 new two, three and four-bedroom homes and one and two-bedroom apartments, including 32 affordable properties and sits to the immediate West of the homebuilder’s popular Locking Parklands site.
As well as providing much needed new homes in Locking, St. Modwen Homes will also make financial contributions for off-site infrastructure and services as part of the planning obligations for the development. The funding will be used towards community and health facilities, education provision and the promotion of sustainable transport in the local area.
In addition to this, Handley Place will provide a central square with public open space and pedestrian and cycle links through the development. As part of the homebuilder’s commitment to sustainability, St. Modwen Homes will also fund and implement the planting of a 1.7 acre woodland adjacent to the development.
Dave Smith, Managing Director at St. Modwen Homes said:
“We are committed to delivering high-quality homes for local people and are pleased to have received planning permission for 248 new homes at Handley Place.
“Locking is a lovely area that has a wonderful community spirit. The area is thriving and it really is a place where people aspire to live and build a future.”
Construction work at Handley Place has now commenced, with the first homes expected to be released for sale in Spring 2020.
