The site has been successfully promoted through the planning system and benefits from outline planning permission for up to 2,500 new homes, two primary schools, two local centres (including retail, community and employment uses), open space and strategic landscaping. The first residential phase, comprising 899 new homes, has been sold to Redrow Homes and Bidwells has been retained to sell the further residential phases, in addition to the local centres.
