Leading housebuilder, Linden Homes, has completed a major land deal to deliver 745 much-needed homes in Thanet, Kent. The 54-acre development will provide a mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom homes, with 25 percent of homes on site being affordable.
The site will be home to a number of key facilities including a new medical centre, school, retail units and a care home, which will be developed by Frontier Estates, a leading developer in the healthcare sector.
The land, which is allocated in Thanet District Council’s Local Plan, was purchased with planning permission and Linden Homes embarked on construction in August 2019, with full completion expected in 2028.
Darren Maddox managing director at Linden Homes South East commented:
“We are delighted to announce the completion of this land purchase. Kent is a target area for our business unit and this site, in particular, fits with our commitment to provide quality homes for families and first-time buyers in attractive locations.
“This new development will deliver much-needed new homes as well as a wide range of community facilities which will benefit new and existing residents, as well as the local economy. Thanet District Council has set out that they need to deliver 17,140 houses by 2031 and we’re proud to be helping them meet this target.”
This is the third large land deal that the top-10 housebuilder has completed this year. In April, Linden Homes completed a deal for a site in Beverley, East Yorkshire which has a development value of around £180 million and will provide 900 new homes. The developer recently partnered Scottish-based housebuilder Miller Homes to deliver 750 new homes in Chichester.
