On behalf of Gleeson Land, we are thrilled to have secured outline approval for 87 dwellings in Fairford, Gloucestershire on land allocated by the Fairford Neighbourhood Plan following a successful promotion of the site.

Working closely alongside Fairford Parish Council and Cotswold District Council, the proposals were approved by the Council in October 2023 under delegated powers.

The approved development includes the provision of 35 much-needed affordable homes for the area, alongside the delivery 3.7 ha of natural and semi-natural greenspace, amenity greenspace and children’s play. The scheme will also deliver ecological enhancements that will deliver an approximate 19% biodiversity net gain. As part of the open space provision, 0.4 ha of orchard and allotments will be provided to meet local demand.

The development also benefits from a Building With Nature (BwN) accreditation. The BwN scheme seeks to set benchmark standards which demonstrate the development is of the highest standards for green infrastructure design. And subsequently, we are happy to announce the development has been nominated for the Landscape Institute Building With Nature National Award 2023.
