Four-acre site earmarked for new homes sold

A four-acre site with planning permission for 25 new homes has been sold. North Oak Homes, the residential arm of Worcestershire-based property development and investment group Maximus, has sold the land at St Weonards, west of Ross-on-Wye. The site has been acquired by M F Freeman, the Gloucestershire family-owned developer for an undisclosed sum. Maximus managing director Jon Hickton said: "We are pleased that our focus on strategic land, sourcing land opportunities and working with landowners to facilitate the entire planning and sales process has borne fruit once again. "This is a prime example of the opportunities that exist and that we can help to bring forward." The planning permission on the site on land to the west of A466, provides for 25 homes, of which nine will be affordable housing and a mixture of two and three bedroom accommodation. The remaining 16 properties will be a mixture of two, three and four-bedroom homes available on the open market.
