McBains has secured planning permission for its master plan for Lots B1 and B2 at Glebe Farm, Wavendon near Milton Keynes, on behalf of Bellway Homes.
Proposals for the construction of 381 new homes were granted planning permission by Milton Keynes Council on June 17, 2020.
Glebe Farm is a new, mixed-use, sustainable urban extension comprising up to 1,140 dwellings, primary and secondary schools, a mixed-use neighbourhood centre, a health centre and multifunctional green infrastructure.
The site layout provides 381 residential units ranging from 1-bedroom flats to 4-bedroom, detached properties within the tenures of market and affordable.
The proposed buildings are up to 3-storey in height, with a variety of eaves lines incorporated to help promote variety in the streetscene. The bulk of dwellings are two storeys, with two-and-a-half and three-storey units used occasionally for placemaking purposes and along the site's main arterial road.
This latest planning success follows on from approvals for the adjoining parcels 2A (for Bellway Homes – approved September 2019) and 1A (for Bovis Homes – approved October 2019), bringing the total number of approved units designed by McBains at Glebe Farm to 747.
