King’s Park, St Albans
In the face of strong competition, Wates Developments in partnership with Linden Homes Chiltern acquired this 30 acre site in St Albans (2010).
The acquisition was a complicated transaction with a proportion of the site being forward sold to a Beechcroft/Berkeley Homes Partnership to deliver new retirement homes within the scheme.
Planning was secured in 2011 for the Wates/Linden element for 150 new homes on this landmark site.
- Ex playing field site located ten minutes’ walk from the city centre
- Extensive consultation was undertaken to ensure local residents and key stakeholders were positively engaged in the detailed design and planning process
- Is a highly regarded scheme with now over 50% sold
- The project has made significant contributions to improving sustainable transport initiatives within St Albans including a new cycle link and electronic real time bus information.
