Latest phase of major new housing development for North Yate gets green light

Ladden Garden Village

The latest phase of Ladden Garden Village, a major new development delivering hundreds of new homes for North Yate, has been given the go ahead by planners.

Housebuilder Barratt Homes submitted plans to South Gloucestershire Council for 183 new homes including 69 affordable homes, to be created as part of phase four of Ladden Garden Village. This phase will include a range of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom homes that will form part of this growing community. More than 270 of the Barratt Homes built in the first phases are now occupied.

Set within 32 acres, Ladden Garden Village is an already established community which will include a primary school, nursery and shop when complete. There will also be four acres of new play areas, sports pitches and 4.5 km of footpaths and cycleways.

Barratt Developments is also contributing £1.89 million towards a community centre currently being progressed by South Gloucestershire Council. This will include public outdoor space and be suitable for a range of uses from cultural and sports events and classes to youth services and a café.

The new homes in this latest phase of the development will be timber-framed, with elements built using innovative off-site construction methods. Precision-cut in advance, the frame is then brought to the construction site, offering many advantages including faster, more efficient building of homes, as well as sustainability benefits including a low carbon build process and responsibly sourced timber, minimising deforestation.

Andrea Pilgrim, sales director at Barratt Homes’ Bristol division, which covers the wider region, said:

“We are delighted to be able to go ahead with the plans for our latest phase of development at Ladden Garden Village, which has already proven to be a very popular new neighbourhood among a range of different types of buyers from families to downsizers to young professionals. It’s great to see this community expanding and coming into its own as more and more people move in, with this latest planning milestone paving the way for the delivery of many more much-needed new homes for Yate.”

Construction on Barratt Homes’ phase four of Ladden Garden Village is due to start next year.
