Severnbank in Newnham on Severn

Full planning application submitted for Newnham development

We are delighted to confirm that we have now submitted the full planning application for our proposed development in Newnham-on-Severn.

The application has been produced in partnership with Origin3. The planning and design consultancy firm has contributed to a number of regeneration projects across the South West, including a new low-impact, sustainable housing development at Bedminster Green in Bristol.

The development, which has yet to be named, is situated on a gently rising section of land near the banks of the River Severn, with stunning views over the water. It will have excellent commuter links to Gloucester to the north and Bristol to the south. The site will include landscaped and green infrastructure areas too, with native tree retention and planting. One of the highlights of the area is its glorious river views, which are taken full advantage of by proposed generous landscaping to the whole of the site.

The planning documents outline a development of 80 houses in total. The development comprises of a mixture of house types and sizes.  Each offers its own unique character while still complementing the aesthetic of the existing structures in the area, providing a careful blend of exterior finishes to bring both individuality and harmony to the development’s appearance.


Part of the development will be a self-contained, gated area of properties dedicated to over 55s, providing additional security and services to help support later living. Drawing on the expertise of our sister division Freeman Retirement Living, we have designed these properties so that they can be adapted as the homeowner’s needs change, providing optimal accessibility and convenience if required.

In the larger section of the development, the proposed houses range from 1- to 5-bedrooms and are a mixture of traditional and more contemporary styles. The interior of every home will be finished to the impeccable Freeman Homes standard.
