ilke Homes has secured its biggest site to date – a 14.6-acre site in Grantham, which has planning permission for 227 homes
The site is located on Dysart Road and benefits from detailed planning consent for 227 homes granted by South Kesteven District Council.
Enabling works have already been undertaken by the former landowner, Anderson Group.
ilke Homes worked closely with the Anderson Group and CBRE to agree the deal which will help unlock the site and deliver much-needed family housing in Grantham.
All of the homes will be manufactured offsite at ilke Homes’ 250,000 sq ft factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, before being delivered to Dysart Road.
By manufacturing offsite, disruptions to the local community will be kept to a minimum and energy savings will also be achieved.
Precision-engineering techniques will allow the homes to be some of the most energy-efficient in the country.
This means all the new homes at Dysart Road will exceed the government’s Future Homes Standard.
‘Much-needed sustainable homes’
Tom Heathcote, executive director of development at ilke Homes, said: “We’re delighted to have secured a deal with the Anderson Group and to have worked on our first deal with CBRE.
“As a result of this deal, we will be unlocking a site which benefits from detailed planning consent.
“Thanks to our modular housing technology, we will be able to deliver 227 much-needed sustainable homes for the local community in just over two years.”
Will Blacker, associate director at CBRE, commented: “It has been great to work with the team at ilke homes who are bringing forward much needed housing to the region in a time where there is a shortage of immediate and deliverable land.
“I am excited at the prospect of this site coming forward so quickly through the use of modular off-site construction methods.
“This site provides a great opportunity to create a sizeable, well-connected community.”
Andrew Jay, group managing director at Anderson Group, added: ““Anderson Group are at the forefront of Innovation in the UK construction sector, so we look forward to seeing ilke
“Homes deliver their own innovative new homes at Dysart Road, and we feel sure there will be further opportunities for collaboration in the future.”
