Galliford Try and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) have singed a joint venture agreement to redevelop the former Gloscat College Site at Gloucester.

The residential developer’s regional business Linden Homes has agreed to carry out a development comprising up to 350 homes, together with employment and community space. The scheme forms part of the Greyfriars Regeneration Project.

Colin Molton, HCA regional director south west, said: ‘We will work with local partners to ensure the delivery of a high-quality integrated development, which achieves the aspirations of the local community, delivers a scheme with a distinctive character of the highest design quality and, most importantly, creates a sense of neighbourhood and community for residents.’

Greg Fitzgerald, chief executive at Galliford Try, said: ‘Despite the current economic difficulties, particularly in the delivery of new housing, we are excited by the prospect of creating an innovative partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency on this project and are confident that positive progress can now be made in moving this exciting development forward.’
