The scale of our operations opens up opportunities for phased sales to other housebuilders and affordable housing providers at our larger sites.
We maintain control of the scheme masterplan and work collaboratively with those who share our values in the delivery of sustainable, thriving communities. Through Inland Partnerships, we can also offer build capability to buyers.
In practice – Cheshunt Lakeside (joint venture)
Cheshunt Lakeside is set to become a vibrant new mixed-use community for Cheshunt.
We are working with Broxbourne Borough Council and other landowners to transform this site, delivering 1,725 new homes, business space and amenities, including a new primary school. The masterplan will not only deliver much-needed new homes but also community facilities and infrastructure that will bring lasting benefits to the local area.
Resolution to grant planning permission was announced in June 2019, representing the largest consent ever achieved by Inland Homes.
We achieved detailed planning consent for the delivery of the first phase, comprising 195 new homes, in March 2020. In line with our strategy, we then secured the sale of these plots to a local housing association, with a contract for Inland Partnerships to build.
Following the completion of demolition, including the old Tesco headquarters, we began construction of this first phase in November 2020.
The masterplan will deliver
New homes in a range of sizes and tenures, including affordable housing
of brand new, flexible commercial space for business, including start-up, helping to boost the local economy by up to £16m a year through inward investment
of new open space (the equivalent of 8 football pitches), plus a new public square, creating green spaces for the community to enjoy and enhance biodiversity
construction jobs and 30 apprenticeships during the build process, as well as up t0 1,150 new jobs within the completed development
