Walsall Housing Group (WHG) has been pre-sold a 43-unit development by prefab house-builder Ilke Homes.
Ilke Homes has purchased a four acre brownfield site in Southam, Warwickshire, from a private landowner and will, subject to planning, develop the site for 43 factory made affordable homes.
This deal will be a further step in Ilke Homes’ evolution from manufacturing homes to becoming a fully integrated developer.
The company is to make a reserved matters planning application immediately to secure a start on site in the latter part of the summer 2021. The site which already has outline planning permission was previously allocated as part of the adopted core strategy for Southern.
This deal follows recent news that Ilke Homes has also secured a 14.6 acre site for 227 homes in Grantham, Lincolnshire.
Tom Heathcote, Development director said: “By packaging up private land with turnkey development solutions in partnership with housing associations such as WHG, we can very quickly scale up the delivery of high quality, energy-efficient affordable housing across the country”.
Rebecca Bennett Casserly, WHG corporate development director said: “We have been researching modular homes for some time and are looking forward to working with Ilke Homes as we venture into our first scheme of scale. This exciting new development will deliver homes quickly and more efficiently, significantly contributing to our annual target of building more than 500 high quality and affordable homes”.
