Hayfield has acquired a prime eight-acre site to deliver a £21m green development, featuring 50 eco-efficient luxury homes in Wiltshire, West Lavington

Hayfield has submitted a Reserved Matters Application to Wiltshire Council for a range of bungalows, maisonettes and two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom executive houses.

30% of the development will be designated for affordable housing and every home will have parking. The plans also feature air source heat pumps, energy-efficient underfloor heating, smart electric vehicle fast-charging points and ultra-fast broadband.

Hayfield intends to create a new access road and footpaths as well as 20 new drop-off car parking spaces for the use of parents and carers at Dauntsey Academy Primary School, located next to the new housing scheme.

With biodiversity in mind, an equipped play area, native tree planting, an attenuation pond, and a new area of pollen and nectar-rich wildflowers will be incorporated.

Eco-efficient specification

Andy Morris, managing director of Hayfield, the WhatHouse? Housebuilder of the Year, said: “We are delighted to be kick-starting the New Year with such a prime acquisition.

“This is our second site in Wiltshire, but Hayfield Wood in Broad Blunsdon is nearly an hour away, so this proposed scheme will appeal to a very different market.

“As a reflection of the desirability and popularity of this area with aspirational purchasers, this scheme will become one of Hayfield’s most luxurious new developments.

“The plans for each two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom home features room dimensions that greatly exceed those typically seen in the new homes market.

“Our spacious designs and sympathetic architecture – which takes design cues from the plethora of traditional properties in the village – will be combined with an eco-efficient specification that far exceeds Building Regulations.

“Following initial pre-application engagement, we look forward to continue to work with West Lavington District Council, local people and stakeholders, regarding our application.”
