Harworth Group plc has secured outline planning consents on residential land at Bilsthorpe, Nottinghamshire and Market Warsop, Mansfield. These consents grow the Group's portfolio of regeneration projects and demonstrate the continued expertise of its Strategic Land team.
The first concent covers 85 residential plots at Harworth’s 9.54-acre Bilsthorpe site, alongside 3,000 ft² of new commercial space for retail development. The second concent was granted for 400 residential plots on a 31.2-acre site owned by The Trustees of the Warsop Estate, which has been secured as part of a Planning Promotion Agreement signed with the landowner. The consent provides for 400 new homes, a mix of two, three and four-bed properties including bungalows, alongside associated highways works, public open space and landscaping.
Harworth's consented residential pipeline now stands at 10,933 plots, providing circa 11 years supply at current sales rates, alongside a consented commercial pipeline of over 12.13m ft².
Tim Love, Director of Strategic Land at Harworth Group plc, said: “We are pleased that we’ve been able to secure consents on both schemes, following over two years of work to bring these applications forward. Securing a consent via our first Planning Promotion Agreement demonstrates that our approach and skill in securing planning consent on our own land can be readily transferred to land owned by third parties to provide a further source of income to the Harworth Group business.”
Stuart Ashton, Head of Planning at Harworth Group plc, added: “Nottinghamshire is an important market for the business, with these two successful planning applications following receipt of planning consent for 800 homes at Thoresby last October. We will now push forward with preparing land for redevelopment at both Thoresby and Bilsthorpe, as we continue to play a role in the provision the residential land required to help meet the ongoing shortfall of affordably-priced new homes in the region.”
