Hayfield has secured an 8-acre development site in the historic town of Woburn Sands and a 16-acre development site in Blunsdon

In Wiltshire, Hayfield has recently acquired a 16-acre development site in the village of Blunsdon to deliver a £29m residential scheme. While in the Cambridgeshire village of Great Gransden, a 4.4-acre site has also been acquired to deliver 40 new homes.

Hayfield Oaks

Located off Newport Road, the development area is surrounded by mature trees, which has inspired its Hayfield Oaks name. The site was purchased with full detailed planning in place for 53 four and five-bedroom houses. 16 of the 53 plots have been designated for affordable housing.   

The homes have been designed around a central public open space feature, while a large balancing pond is also incorporated into the scheme. House designs will be constructed in red brick, with render features and part-tiled hanging elevations. Construction work will commence next month – March.     

Woburn Sands railway station is within walking distance of the development, which is three short stops away from the mainline station of Bletchley. Hayfield Oaks is accessed off the A5130 Newport Road, which leads directly to all the amenities for the small town, including shops, pubs, restaurants, schools, garden centres and the outstanding Ouzel Valley Park.

Hayfield Grange

In the small market town of Southam in Warwickshire, the final phase of Hayfield Grange has just been released. The development comprises 51 family houses and bungalows.   

In Bedfordshire, Hayfield is under construction with 105 homes close to English Heritage’s Grade I listed Wrest Park Estate, which is in the sought-after village of Silsoe.

Seven miles away, in the village of Clifton, the Hayfield Gate development is preparing to be launched, which comprises 95 homes.

Hayfield Green

Hayfield’s live sites include the flagship Hayfields site in Southmoor, Oxfordshire, which comprises 74 homes. Also under construction in Oxfordshire is Hayfield Green, where 66 houses and bungalows are being developed on a 21-acre disused RAF WWII Airfield in this historic village of Stanton Harcourt.

Mark Booth, managing director of Hayfield, said: “Having acquired the site will full planning in place, we will be able to commence construction next month and look forward to launching this £28m development as Hayfield Oaks later this year.

“Having recently secured an £85m equity and debt facility, we are continuing to actively seek prime land opportunities of this scale.”

Ben Adams, land director for Hayfield, added: “We have been searching for a site that would enable us to deliver a stylish development of note within easy reach of Milton Keynes.

“Woburn Sands ticks all the boxes for us, with the bonus being the train station that is only a short walk from the site. We are excited about getting to work on site and gearing up to the public launch, where we will be able to showcase the seven executive home designs that will be available.”
