This Land™ announces that it has acquired 25 new sites across Cambridgeshire

This Land™ announces that it has acquired 25 new sites across Cambridgeshire as part of its plan to deliver a market-leading approach to the creation of desirable new homes and neighbourhoods across the UK.

Each site will demonstrate This Land’s™ refreshing customer-led approach to the creation of places, focusing on high quality design and using intelligent insight to challenge the property development industry.

With an impressive pipeline of development projects, these new sites will deliver in excess of 1,600 new homes close to Cambridge – the fastest growing city economy in the UK. Soham Eastern Gateway is This Land’s™ first and largest development project, which aims to deliver approximately 550 homes, including affordable housing and a range of local amenities for the benefit both of its residents and the wider community. Another development of a similar scale is located in Burwell, where This Land™ intends to deliver 350 new homes, together with a community centre, sports hub and excellent cycle and pedestrian links.

This Land’s™ newly acquired portfolio lends itself to a variety of mixed-use developments in both rural and urban locations. The new sites include the redevelopment of Milton Road Library in Cambridge; a mixed-use site at Soham Northern Gateway; a new residential development at land adjacent Hereward Hall in March, together with a range of sites in surrounding villages, including Brampton, Foxton, Wicken and Litlington.

This Land’s™ commitment to meet customer aspirations will be introduced across all 25 sites through the provision of a flexible and adaptable range of house types that will offer outstanding value for its customers, while commercial developments will generate high-quality and long term returns.

With placemaking central to the ethos of the business, This Land™ has developed a design-led approach enabling customers to grow within their own home and provide purchasers with a unique opportunity to adapt their homes as their lives and families evolve.

David Gelling, Managing Director commented: “We are delighted to announce This Land’s™ ambitious plans evidenced by the recent acquisition of 25 sites all located in Cambridgeshire, an area of significant economic growth. This Land™ is committed to going above and beyond for its customers through the delivery of desirable neighbourhoods and setting new standards for a future beyond the traditional house builder in the UK.”
