The Granite Partnership, represented by Carter Jonas, has agreed the sale of the final phase of its land interests in Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire, to ensure the delivery of an additional 91 dwellings on a former brownfield depot site off Appleford Road.

The significant development opportunity benefits from outline planning permission for 91 new residential dwellings, and covers an area of approximately 7.28 acres (2.95 hectares). Contracts have been exchanged with Linden Homes following a comprehensive marketing exercise and sales negotiation coordinated by Carter Jonas.

The property is the second phase of a larger development scheme, for which Carter Jonas originally secured outline planning permission for 195 dwellings in April 2013.

Having acted for The Granite Partnership in the sale of the initial phase to Persimmon Homes in 2015, Carter Jonas subsequently submitted a revised outline planning application for the remainder of the site. This included establishing a new access direct off Appleford Road and negotiating revised planning obligations.

Chris Wilmshurst, development consultant at Carter Jonas, said: “This is another example of where we have used our expertise to invigorate new life into an otherwise redundant property, and in doing so assist in providing a viable location for much needed new homes in Oxfordshire. The sale itself was complex and required consideration of a full range of factors, including service connections, linkages and planning/legal obligations to ensure that the revised planning permission could be implemented successfully. It is an excellent demonstration of the work undertaken by our planning and development team, working hand in hand together with our landowning clients from the inception of planning all the way through to a successful land disposal.”
