A site in Windsor with outline consent for 135 homes has been sold to Crest Nicholson.

Acting for vendor Wates Developments, Leaders Romans Group (LRG) secured the 5.4-hectare site between Windsor Marina and the A308, which Wates had managed to get released from the Green Belt.

Boyer which is part of Leaders Romans Group, managed the planning process on behalf of Wates and is now instructed by Crest Nicholson to submit a reserved matters planning application in the first half of 2023.

David Brocklebank, executive managing director at Wates Developments Group, said: “We are delighted to have completed this sale of a portion of our land interest in Windsor to Crest and with great support from LRG.

“This is a truly exceptional new homes site and a fantastic location for a new community in Windsor.  We expect to secure planning for the remainder of the wider site early in 2023 to allow the whole scheme to come forward quickly. A great performance by Crest”.

Ian Barnett, national land director for LRG,said: “This is a significant land deal which will help deliver much-needed homes, including affordable housing. It is one of two substantial land deals that Leaders Romans Group has facilitated in this region in the last month and as such, demonstrates considerable strength in the local market in spite of the wider economic conditions.”
