Delivering the vision of a diverse 1,500 home new community, Kingsgrove in Wantage reaches another key milestone as St. Modwen and Crabhill Developments sell the latest parcel of residential land to Bellway Homes.

This triggers the start of the next phase of residential development at the 227-acre scheme, where St. Modwen is the master developer working closely with landowner Crabhill Developments and our development professionals, who advised on the sale.

Following a competitive tender process, leading housebuilder Bellway Homes has been selected to develop Phase 3b, which will comprise 121 homes including 45 affordable units. It sits at the eastern edge of the residential development and represents a second phase on site for the housebuilder.

Infrastructure for the services and access roads for the site are well progressed and Bellway will target a start on site in October this year.

James Bainbridge, Chairman, said: This is the sixth residential parcel sold by the landowners at Kingsgrove and will significantly increase the rate of delivery of much needed new homes in the area. It demonstrates the confidence, strength and depth of the residential development market in Oxfordshire despite current COVID-19 restrictions.
