Bewley Homes has secured planning permission from Surrey Health Borough Council for 65 new homes in Deepcut, Surrey.
The Council voted unanimously to approve the award-winning housebuilder’s reserved matters application on the brownfield site on Deepcut Bridge Road.
Reflecting the identified local need, Bewley will now build a mix of homes: one-, two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, including 25 affordable homes. Seven of the homes will be built for the Government’s new First Homes initiative which gives eligible buyers (locals, essential workers, low income) a chance to purchase at between 30% and 50% of the market value.
Bewley has confirmed a significant proportion of the land on the development will remain open space and retained woodland.
Geoff France, Land Director at Bewley Homes, said: “We are delighted to have finally secured planning consent from Surrey Heath Borough Council for this exciting development which has so much potential. We look forward to getting on site as early as possible to build a range of quality new homes.”
Bewley Homes Managing Director Andrew Brooks commented this site was strategically important for the housebuilder. He said: “This is our second planning consent in recent months in the Surrey area. This is exactly the type of site we are looking for – self-contained, open spaces, set amongst mature trees and boarded by the canal making it a unique, ‘very Bewley’ site. We look forward to building what we know will be a stunning development and become part of the new community.”
