Walton Homes commences land-hunt as residential demand soars

2nd September 2021

Staffordshire developer Walton Homes has launched a quest for residential land opportunities throughout the county in a bid to help meet the demand for new homes.

Further to its Copperfields development, a collection of six properties in Tatenhill near Burton on Trent, having sold out in record time, the business is keen to build on its success and create more high-specification homes in the region.

Amy Summerton, Director, said that the appetite for homes throughout Staffordshire and Derbyshire had soared during the UK’s three national lockdowns as people took stock of what they wanted from their local environment, and the business was keen to capitalise on that and give potential buyers what they wanted.

Amy said: “We have a long history of siting exclusive developments throughout Staffordshire, and those we have located on the Staffordshire/Derbyshire border have proved extremely popular in recent years.

“If there is one thing we have learned from the Coronavirus pandemic, it is that spending so much time confined to their homes has given people the chance to think about what they want from their property, be it to downsize to a smaller home with access to open countryside, or to look for a larger house with a bigger garden to enjoy. We have carried out extensive market research to assess the appetite for homes across the region, and there is no question that people are keen to combine the best of both worlds with an idyllic setting and convenient access links to amenities and busier towns and cities.

“While we have most recently announced developments further north in the Staffordshire Moorlands to fulfil those requirements, we are keen to meet the demand for quality homes throughout the county as a whole and we are looking for land parcels located close to popular towns or within semi-rural settings to help us do so.

“We have enjoyed great success with both our Copperfields development in Tatenhill and The Meadows at Stapenhill, and we’re looking for similar sites within the area with a view to creating another exclusive development in due course,” she said.

With more than three decades’ experience of building in the Midlands, Walton Homes has established a reputation for delivering high-specification, individually designed family homes that combine practicality and style. With developments sited in desirable areas, each property is sympathetically designed to ensure that it blends with the local environment, and all developments are sited with close consideration to local amenities and transport links.
