Hayfield acquires site for £21m green residential development in Wiltshire

Hayfield has acquired a prime eight-acre site in West Lavington, Wiltshire, to deliver a £21m GDV green residential scheme.


The site, located off Lavington Lane, was purchased from Gaiger Properties Limited and Crossmolina Limited with outline planning consent in place.

Hayfield has submitted a reserved matters application to deliver 50 luxury bungalows, maisonettes and two-, three- and four-bedroom executive homes, 30% of which will be designated for affordable housing.

All homes will have designated parking, with many benefiting from garages.

The scheme will include a range of sustainable features, including air source heating pumps, energy-efficient underfloor heating and electrical vehicle fast-charging points.

To generate enhancements to biodiversity, the project will also incorporate landscaped public open space, an equipped play area, native tree planting, an attenuation pond, and a new area of pollen and nectar-rich wildflowers. 

In addition, the plans include the creation of new access road and footpaths to adoptable standards from Lavington Lane, as well as 20 new designated drop-off car parking places which will be provided to Dauntsey Academy Primary School, located adjacent to Hayfield’s scheme

Andy Morris, managing director at Hayfield, said: “We are delighted to be kick-starting the new year with such a prime acquisition. 

“This is our second site in Wiltshire, but Hayfield Wood in Broad Blunsdon is nearly an hour away, so this proposed scheme will appeal to a very different market. 

“As a reflection of the desirability and popularity of this area with aspirational purchasers, this scheme will become one of Hayfield’s most luxurious new developments. 
“The plans for each two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom home feature room dimensions that greatly exceed those typically seen in the new homes market. 

“Our spacious designs and sympathetic architecture – which takes design cues from the plethora of traditional properties in the village – will be combined with an eco-efficient specification that far exceeds building regulations. 

“Following initial pre-application engagement, we look forward to continue to work with West Lavington District Council, local people and stakeholders, regarding our application.”
