Ludlow scheme gets the go-ahead

In November, we secured planning consent for 137 new homes in Ludlow by appeal. Covering 43 acres on the southern edge of the Shropshire market town, the site is in a highly sustainable location with quick and easy access to the A49 and the town’s train station. Ludlow is also a mere 20 miles from Kidderminster and only nine miles from the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

We brought the scheme forward against the backdrop of a Local Plan that estimates a shortfall of 23,000 homes up until 2026. Whilst the Inspector considered that the Shropshire Council could demonstrate a five-year housing land supply, which we contest, the proposed development was considered to be sustainable and was therefore allowed. You can download the appeal decision HERE (http://www.richboroughestates.co.uk/appeals.asp).

We are now seeking a housebuilder to deliver this fantastic scheme, and we are confident that 2017 will be a great year for Ludlow.  Please get in touch with James Bradshaw (http://www.richboroughestates.co.uk/meet-the-team.asp) if you are interested in acquiring the site.
