Kingsmere has been successfully promoted and developed in a joint venture partnership.  Countryside has been responsible for securing planning permission, creating the landscape-led masterplan and managing the extensive infrastructure works, including a new bypass and works to the A41.

The quality of place and commitment to early infrastructure delivery has given the local authority confidence to allocate a second phase of development for 700 homes.
