Supporting Wichelstowe LLP, a joint housing development venture near Swindon

Ashfords LLP has supported Wichelstowe LLP across multiple service lines, as it creates a new vibrant community of circa 2750 homes on the southern outskirts of Swindon. 

Our advice has spanned the development lifecycle from initial land drawdowns through the build out phase and on to disposal and plot sales. Our project team includes specialists in real estate, corporate, construction and planning. 
The sheer scale of the scheme at Wichelstowe makes it a challenging, though deeply rewarding, project. We are instructed across multiple development phases all of which are at a different stage – e.g. we can be simultaneously dealing with land acquisition of one phase whilst dealing with the sale of units to private purchasers on another.
Wichelstowe LLP benefits from Ashfords’ depth of experience in development sites and our ability to call upon specialists from a wide array of disciplines. We have demonstrated an ability to get under the skin of all the legal aspects of the development scheme. 

Our comprehensive understanding of the site’s history, the joint venture (JV) structure and respective concerns of the members, as well as an appreciation for their vision for the new Wichelstowe community ensures that we provide commercial, tailored advice at every stage.  
Daniel Pavely, Project Director at Wichelstowe has commented: “The joint venture partnership has established an excellent working relationship with Ashfords over the last few years on the Wichelstowe project. The Ashfords team continue to be very proactive and have provided clear and valuable commercial advice, as well as offering a close working relationship with enduring legal support.  We are looking forward to deepening our working relationship as the development progresses”
