Burgate Acres - Latest Land Acquisition
We are delighted to announce that over the summer we have
completed on our latest land acquisition in the New Forest. The site is in
Burgate, just to the north of Fordingbridge, next to Burgate Secondary School.
The property acquired by us is called Burgate Acres and it
is currently a large house and grounds of around 4.5 acres. As part of the land
deal we provided the option for the previous owners to continue living in the
house while they completed the purchase of their new home.
Burgate Acres adjoins another 3.5 acres of farmland we
recently acquired to the North. The whole area to the north of Fordingbridge,
including these two land parcels, sits in a Strategic Housing Site for
delivering much needed housing for the area.
Together with other landowners we hope to deliver around 70 – 80 new homes as part of the overall allocation.
