Housebuilder completes purchase of nine-acre Stafford site

4th March 2016

The sale of a nine-acre development site in Stafford has been completed by Grasscroft Property.

The land, on the south side of Knightley Road in Gnosall, has been purchased by Hinckley-based Linden Homes West Midlands. Linden is a subsidiary of Galliford Try.

The site was sold with the benefit of planning permission for 55 houses.

Oldham-based Grasscroft has worked the site through a strategic planning process over the last six years and won development approval on appeal in summer 2014.

Mike Coulter, founder and managing director of Grasscroft Property, said: “This is a fabulous site for new housing and a sustainable location in Stafford.

“This will be a great site for Linden Homes and ought to sell very well. It’s a pity we had to take this opportunity to appeal, however, we threw everything at the process and were ultimately successful in getting the right result for ourselves and the landowner.”

Wolverhampton-based First City acted as agent to Grasscroft on the sale.
