On behalf of our landowning clients, Crabhill Development and their master developer, St Modwen, we are pleased to announce the sale of a 1.1-acre serviced plot with planning permission for the care home, on the exciting Kingsgrove development scheme in Wantage, Oxfordshire.

The land was sold to Care UK for £2,750,000 and represents the latest milestone in our landowning clients’ vision to create a community with aspirations for design and place-making.

Our professionals have acted for the landowners at Kingsgrove for more than 10 years. Together with Lands Improvement Holdings, we obtained outline planning permission for the 227-acre new settlement in July 2015 from the Vale of White Horse District Council for up to 1,500 homes, a new primary school, a neighbourhood centre, including a pub/restaurant and local retail accommodation, sports pitches, employment space and community amenities set around a central park. St. Modwen subsequently signed a development agreement with the landowners to take forward the delivery of the masterplan and infrastructure in June 2017.
