Construction firm Vistry is set to deliver 300 new homes in the Hampshire village of Church Crookham.
The 82-acre site has detailed planning permission for 180 new homes for private sale and 120 affordable properties available for local people through rent and shared ownership. There will be a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom designs.
Vistry Group will also be providing a new sports pavilion, sports pitches, Multi-Use Games Area and children’s play areas as well as extensive natural greenspace within the site.
Amy Savage, Land Director for Vistry Southern, said: “The acquisition of this land means we are committed to delivering 300 much-needed new homes to this part of Hampshire.
“We are keen to progress work on this very exciting development which will be set in a beautiful location surrounded by stunning countryside. The selection of homes at the site will appeal to a wide range of home-hunters including young first-time buyers, growing families and people downsizing later in life.
“At Albany Park, we will be showcasing our state-of-the-art customer experience which has seen us team up with the award-winning visual technology company Futurium. Customers will be able to browse, design and purchase their new house on a system that will digitally transform the home-buying journey.”
Amy added: “There will be a very definite focus on the provision of a range of outdoor environments at Albany Park, from green open spaces to children’s play areas, sports pitches, a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA), and a new sports pavilion. Since the pandemic, people who are looking for a new home want to have easy access to sports facilities and natural surroundings and Albany Park will give them exactly that.
“We will be creating a fabulous 40-acre Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace next to the new homes. This area will feature walking paths, boardwalks, new planting and a public car park and will provide new and existing residents in the area with a place to get outdoors to de-stress and reconnect with nature.”
The housebuilder hopes to be able to release the first homes for sale at Albany Park this spring.
