Partnership with Ridgepoint Homes to deliver 200 new homes

– 1 min read

We are delighted to announce we have entered into our second site partnership with Ridgepoint Homes following the success of Eskdale Road in Aylesbury. Ridgepoint Homes has successfully secured reserved matters planning permission from South Oxfordshire District Council for 200 new homes in Oxfordshire.

The site in Chalgrove, which has been acquired by the Group, will deliver 200 affordable homes and will be constructed by delivery partner Ridgepoint Homes.

The site had existing outline planning consent and Ridgepoint Homes obtained reserved matters approval from the council on 26 May 2021. The development will help the local authority to meet their need for new high-quality affordable housing in the district and forms part of Chalgrove’s neighbourhood plan housing allocation. The development will provide 200 much-needed homes in Oxfordshire for sale through Shared Ownership and homes available for affordable rent.

"We are delighted to continue our partnering relationship with Ridgepoint Homes on what should be a successful and attractive development. This acquisition and delivery of this development in Chalgrove forms an integral part of the Group’s strategy to deliver high quality affordable homes which provide choice and meet people’s needs. Working alongside partners such as Ridgepoint Homes allows us to combine expertise and supports our aim of creating well designed, sustainable mixed-tenure communities.”

Scott Black, Developments Executive Director

“Ridgepoint Homes is delighted to be working with Places for People on another exciting project. The relationship forms a very important part of our business and we very much enjoy working with the Places for People team.” The acquisition unlocks the 19.7ha site, located off Marley Lane in Chalgrove. The development provides a good mix of high-quality homes comprising a collection of 12 one-bedroom apartments; two, three and four-bedroom house types including terraced, semi-detached and detached properties. Residents will also benefit from a scout hut, which will be delivered as part of the scheme, as well as play areas and direct access to riverside meadows alongside Chalgrove Brook, which will add to the rural charm of the development while supporting and enhancing ecology and providing opportunities for recreation and leisure. Places for People and Ridgepoint Homes will commence works on site in autumn 2021.
