Basildon will see a new £200m development, after planning permission was granted recently. Inland Homes expects to start the project in the autumn and after a section 106 has been agreed with the council. A section 106 agreement can:
- restrict the use of or development of the land
- demand specific activities or operations to be carried out in relation to the land
- require payment of sums of money, towards future maintenance costs for example
- ensure land is used in a certain way.
The new Basildon development will cover 54 acres and comprise of 700 new homes and 25,000 sqm of commercial space at Gardiners Park Village. A site will also be provided for the construction of a new school and sporting facilities. Inland Homes joined together with Homes England to submit the planning application. The land is set to be acquired in gradual stages over a period of 5 years. Homes England is the government’s housing accelerator, and has an expertise in driving positive market change. They play a part in enabling developers to make a difference by providing homes, and improving communities and neighbourhoods.
Chief executive of Inland Homes Stephen Wicks, said: “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.
The new homes will of course have to incorporate a certain amount of green technology, and energy efficient additions such as insulation and double glazing. These are now requirements in the world of modern building, working towards lower carbon emissions.
