Cheltenham mixed-use scheme to create new community
St. Modwen has been chosen by Midlands Land Portfolio Limited (MLPL), the property development arm of Severn Trent (represented by CBRE), as its development partner for a 154-acre site to the west of Cheltenham, which is part of a wider mixed-use development known as The Golden Valley Development.
The site is adjacent to the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the National Cyber Security Centre and forms part of a key strategic allocation within the Joint Core Strategy.
It includes the delivery of approximately 3,000 new homes, a mixed-use Cyber Central Cluster bringing together leading cyber businesses and innovators alongside academic facilities dedicated to cyber and technologies, and significant infrastructure improvements.
Guy Gusterson, Managing Director of Strategic Land & Regeneration at St. Modwen said: “The Cheltenham development presents a unique opportunity to shape and deliver a new community next to a globally-recognised hub for cyber security.
“We will work with local stakeholders to deliver a diverse new community where new homes will sit amongst green shared spaces as we deliver a vibrant, sustainable and richly deserving scheme.”
