Approval for 160 new homes in Bishop’s Cleeve

Plans for 160 new homes off the A435 have been given the go ahead by Tewkesbury Borough Council.

Developer Persimmon Homes Severn Valley, together with its sister company Charles Church, have been given permission to build the homes in Bishop’s Cleeve, a village located in the borough of Tewkesbury, near Cheltenham.

Work on the new development is due to commence by the end of 2014 with marketing suites due to open in Spring 2015 and showhomes to follow later this year.  The development will bring much-needed housing to the area and will be a real boost to the local economy.

“We will build a wide range of properties that will appeal to first time buyers, growing families, investors and downsizers,” said Carl Haley, managing director for Persimmon Homes Severn Valley.  “People will also benefit from the excellent range of schools, open spaces and leisure facilities in Bishop’s Cleeve.

“There will be a range of schemes to assist buyers including the Government-backed Help to Buy and NewBuy schemes.  Second time buyers can take advantage of Home Change and Part Exchange.  Customers reserving early can secure their preferred plot and personalise their home with additional options from our finishing touches range.

“The year has started strongly for us with developments ongoing across the region in Gloucester, Yate, Quedgeley and Stroud.  The response from prospective purchasers has been extremely positive and we look forward to getting work underway in Bishop’s Cleeve.”
