Irwin Mitchell Advises On Sale Of Site in Worcestershire The sale of the part-brownfield site in Evesham to Bovis Homes will provide both market and affordable housing close to the centre of Evesham, overlooking the River Avon.
The Sheffield office of national law firm Irwin Mitchell has advised Hallam Land Management on a major deal in respect of a site at Evesham in Worcestershire, which will lead to the creation of 56 new homes as well as the development of public open space in the town. Thomas Hall, a partner in Irwin Mitchell's Real Estate team, acted for Hallam Land Management throughout all of its work on the site, from initially acquiring the site, obtaining planning permission and then on the ultimate completion of the sale of the land to Bovis Homes. Thomas Hall said: -We are delighted to have again supported Hallam Land Management in relation to another new housing development. The provision of additional housing stock will undoubtedly provide a significant boost to the local area in Evesham. -It is also another sign that, despite the ongoing difficulties in the economic climate, there remains an appetite in the property industry to complete deals and take advantage of quality land when the opportunities arise. Bovis Homes were advised on the transaction by their in-house solicitor, Caroline Davies.
