Worcester-based residential developer North Oak Homes has won planning permission for nine large luxury homes in an idyllic part of the Forest of Dean.

North Oak Homes, the residential arm of the privately-owned property and development group Maximus, will bring the site to the market in October.

The four acre plot is in Lovers Walk, Gorsley, near Ross-on-Wye, is within half a mile of Junction 3 of the M50.

Harry Breakwell, of  agents Bruton Knowles in Gloucester, said: “This is a low density site that will appeal to small developers looking for a prestigious project with which to create a signature development.

“It lies three a half miles from Newent, 14 from Gloucester and has good links via the nearby M50 to the national motorway network.”

To the rear of the site is Linton Hall, a handsome period country home built in 1988 and the homes will also be close to Gorsley Common and half a mile from Ross-on-Wye Golf Club.

Gorsley is located in Herefordshire and the village has useful facilities including shop and post office, primary school, pub and village hall.

Ross-on-Wye and Ledbury are close by with Cheltenham, Worcester and Gloucester within easy reach. Fast trains from Worcester, Gloucester and Cheltenham link the area to London Paddington.

Jon Hickton, managing director of Maximus, said: “We are pleased to have secured planning permission and will be offering the site on the open market.

“We work hard to source land opportunities and work with landowners to maximise value and facilitate the entire planning and sales process.”

Maximus is a privately-owned property development and investment group launched in 2001 which has experienced rapid growth and success over the past 18 years.

Its key focus is on strategic land, sourcing land opportunities, working with landowners to facilitate the entire planning and sales process. The company has a current land bank of just under 1,000 acres spread over 12 sites.
