Bewley Homes, a leading regional UK housebuilder, renowned for its commitment to delivering exceptional new homes, is thrilled to announce a number of exciting land acquisitions that will pave the way for its continued growth.

These strategic land opportunities mark a significant step in the company’s mission to provide high-quality homes for communities across the south of England.

The company has two options of land in a sustainable location on the edge of a large village in Hampshire which is being promoted in the Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan for up to 275 homes.

In Wiltshire, the company has a land option which will be promoted in the Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan for approximately 60 homes. The land is located in a sustainable location and again on the edge of a village.

In Oxfordshire, an option has been signed over for 21.9 acres of land in the West Oxfordshire planning district on the edge of a settlement which has great planning prospects.

Over the past year, Bewley Homes has successfully secured a number of prime land opportunities across the south. These acquisitions reflect the company’s dedication to expanding its portfolio and building upon its reputation as a trusted housebuilder.

Geoff France, Land Director, East region, at Bewley Homes, commented: “We are delighted to have secured these excellent land opportunities that will enable us to continue our mission of delivering well-designed and vibrant communities. All of the locations will suit our traditional, sustainable design.

“At Bewley Homes, we are committed to creating homes that stand the test of time, enhancing the lives of those who live in them. Our team has worked tirelessly to identify and secure these locations, and we are excited to bring them forward in the coming months.”

The new land opportunities are strategically located in areas with excellent transport links, access to local amenities, and the potential to create thriving neighbourhoods. Bewley Homes is committed to responsible development, with a focus on sustainability, biodiversity net gain, green spaces, and energy-efficient design.

Bewley Homes is excited to begin the planning phases for these newly acquired land opportunities. The company looks forward to engaging with local authorities, stakeholders, and communities to ensure that the resulting developments meet the needs and expectations of future residents.

Bewley Homes’ Land Director, West region, Andrew Driscoll, added: “Against what has been a challenging backdrop for the industry and the economy, Bewley continues to be secure exciting land opportunities across the south-east and to the west.

“There are a number of reasons we believe for this, including our 30-year track record of building quality homes on developments which stand the test of time. Bewley is also a well-funded private company with a very short line of communication, which enables us to move quickly in securing land investments to support the growth of the business.

Andrew added: “These recent investments are key to the continued growth of the business and as always, we are looking for more opportunities to support our growth.”

Bewley’s recent land acquisitions have included a new site near Newbury with outline planning permission, a flag ship residential development for 75 private homes in Ashton Keynes and planning permissions have been granted in Calne, as well two sites in Alfold and Deepcut in Surrey.
