Skanska to start housebuilding within weeks

Published:  13 October, 2011

CAMBRIDGE: Skanska has bought its second residential site, increasing its activity in UK housing. It will be adjacent to the 2.6-hectare launch site at Great Kneighton which the company purchased in January.

The latest site comes with outline planning permission for up to 310 houses and flats and could cost up to £30m to build. Skanska will apply for planning permission in the first half of 2012 with construction planned to start later that year. 

Skanska has consent for 128 properties at its first development site at Great Kneighton. Construction is due to start at this site within the next few weeks.
