Major development brokered at Emersons Green
Published on: 30 Jun 2013
A SITE that will become the gateway for a major 2,000 home development at Emersons Green East has been bought by Taylor Wimpey.
The deal for the 20-acre plot was brokered by land and property agents CJH Land as part of a series of transactions that will help shape development at the main 150-acre site over the next ten years.
CJH Land director Chris Glover said the latest deal represented a key phase in the development of Emersons Green East, bordered by the Avon Ring Road in the south and the M4 to the north and Westerleigh Road to the west.
He said: “This is a key parcel of land on the southern edge of the development near the Sainsbury’s roundabout. It will become the gateway for the whole site welcoming thousands of new residents during the next decade.”
The main site has a resolution to grant outline planning permission for up to 2,400 houses, employment space, retail, district centre and schools, subject to a section 106 agreement.
The “gat eway” site has outline planning permission for up to 350 homes.
Following completion of Taylor Wimpey’s acquisition of the “gateway” land , CJH Land brokered a transaction which saw Taylor Wimpey sell eight acres of the site to Linden Homes.
The previous owners were ESN (Electricity Supply Nominees) and Howsmoor (Deeley Freed).
The main site, formerly known as GHQ (a consortium made up of Gallagher Estates, Heron and Quintain) represents one of the largest acquisitions by a housebuilder in many years and demonstrates Taylor Wimpey’s commitment to the West Country.
On completion, Emersons Green East will see thousands of new homes, schools and commercial floor space along with shops and a local centre.
