Transactions at Drayton Garden Village


Inland Homes today announces that Drayton Garden Village Ltd ('DGVL'), with whom Inland Homes has an Option and Development Services Agreement, has exchanged contracts to sell 107 apartments at Drayton Garden Village to Paradigm Housing Association.


The land sale is part of a turnkey package including build costs to provide 107 completed units for the sum of £21m.


Additionally, DGVL has also exchanged contracts with Sainsbury's supermarket to enter into a 15 year lease to occupy a 4,000 sq ft commercial unit for a "Sainsbury's Local" at a starting rent of £64,000 per annum.


Stephen Wicks, Chief Executive, Inland Homes, commented:


"These are excellent, highly profitable transactions for DGVL.  We are delighted to be working with Paradigm which is a large, well-funded housing association. 66 of the units are for shared ownership with the balance for rent. This is very much in line with our vision to create a new mixed tenure Garden Village.


"It is also a testament to the quality of the environment at Drayton Garden Village that we have been able to attract a retailer of the calibre of Sainsbury to our development."

Inland Homes identifies brownfield land in the South and South-East of England principally for residentially led development schemes.  The business then enhances the land value by obtaining planning permission.  It also builds houses for private sale and in addition sells consented land onto other developers.
