Legal experts from across Foot Anstey are advising on both of the new garden village sites planned for Devon and Cornwall. Recently announced by the Government, these new garden villages form part of a new initiative planned across the country to ease the current housing crisis.
Lawyers from the top 100 law firm have been working with landowners in relation to the garden village in Culm, Devon. Situated on the edge of Cullompton, the new site will incorporate junction improvements to junction 28 of the M5 as well as a new urban bypass.
In addition to Culm, Foot Anstey's energy specialists have been advising on the joint venture development of two solar parks which are an essential part of the new garden village proposed at West Carlaze which will regenerate 700 hectares of former industrial land to create 1500 sustainable new homes, a health centre and primary school. The firm continues to be involved in the project's implementation
Some £6 million in funding will go towards developing the new villages, while £1.4 million has been earmarked for the towns. These new communities will not only deliver homes but they will also bring new jobs and facilities and deliver a big boost to local economies.
Richard Walford, partner and head of the Property, Infrastructure & Construction sector at Foot Anstey commented, "This entire exercise is a welcome investment for the region. We are pleased to be a part of positively transforming these two sites in Cornwall and Devon to create a vibrant and sustainable new eco-community with striking homes, excellent community and leisure facilities."
