Passionate about great places to live

Homes we're planning

Our mission is to increase the opportunities for people to thrive by building great homes and communities. We want to increase the number of new good-quality, affordable homes for people in housing need in our area.

Our focus is on ‘filling in the gaps’ across the areas we currently cover. By 2025, we want to have added 2000 new affordable homes. This will include homes for low-cost home ownership as we feel this is an important part of meeting housing need. And developing homes for sale allows us to provide more homes and opportunities in the future by making profits to reinvest.

This page gives information about development schemes we are proposing. These may be at different stages: in some cases, we may be carrying out early consultation with local people and in others we may have submitted a planning application and be awaiting its approval.

Jam Factory, Easterton 

In 2012, GreenSquare was granted planning permission to build 38 new homes at the site – and we completed 12 new homes at the development in 2015 in the first phase of work.

Now, before we progress with the next phase, we're proposing to make some changes to our plans – meaning we will need to submit a new planning application to Wiltshire Council.

Local residents were invited to attend a consultation event at the village hall on Wednesday 25 May and found out more about the proposals, talked to staff from GreenSquare, and provided feedback about the updated plans.

The proposed layout for the original site layout remains largely unchanged, with an application to build an additional four homes at the development – bringing the total to 42 homes – and to make some general improvements to the house types and design.
