Having been appointed by Hampshire-based Buckland Group, alongside CG Fry & Son and Thakeham Homes we will be delivering the first 600 of the proposed 6,000 homes at Welborne, which will be one of the largest developments in the UK.
In unique new circumstances, we will be working alongside the experienced regional house builders, recognised, and chosen for our mutual reputation for building high-quality homes. Construction will be carried out at Welborne as a trio and is set to commence in early 2024.
A nationally significant development comprising 6,000 homes, Welborne is located between the South Downs National Park and the Hampshire Coast, just North of Fareham and is set to be a Garden Village for the twenty-first century. Pairing the traditional architecture of this unique corner of England with a layer of modern technology that will ensure a more sustainable, future-proof way of life across the thousand acres of Welborne, the aim is to create exciting new levels of modern sustainable community.
Commenting on the joint venture our Managing Director Graham Flint said:
“We’re really proud to be appointed by the Buckland Group for this partnership. The plans for Welborne truly reflect our commitment to sustainability and core principles to deliver quality housing solutions which local communities can be proud of, now and for future generations. We are particularly excited about some of the innovations that the Welborne project offers, such as the ground source heat network system that will heat our houses, which will reportedly be twice as efficient as air source technology, using considerably less energy and saving more carbon as a result.”
John Beresford, Managing Director of Buckland Development Ltd said:
“At Welborne we have formed partnerships with a new kind of business model where Buckland shares in the risk and reward with our house build chosen partners. The three partnerships we have formed won’t pay for the land until the homes are sold which means that smaller, quality-driven builders are able to build on schemes that would have normally been reserved for large-volume builder companies. In essence, we’ve designed a financial structure that enables the high-quality craft builder to construct on a large development such as Welborne. This approach is groundbreaking and future residents of Welborne will reap the benefits for years to come.”
Inspired by the English Garden City movement of one hundred years ago which is still thriving today, on completion, the Welborne development will provide 6,000 homes with shops, schools, workplaces, healthcare and open spaces in 14 neighbourhoods.
