As Master Developer with control of all the land in-house, Buckland can take a comprehensive and “joined up” approach to delivery across the entire Welborne area. The ability to adopt a patient perspective on financial returns shapes the approach to delivery at Welborne. Our affiliation with Buckland Capital Partners Ltd and Portchester Equity Ltd creates considerable opportunities to innovate beyond the norm – such as the funding and construction of a 48MW solar park which already provides sufficient renewable energy to the grid to power Welborne.
Contrary to the ‘typical’ developer approach, early investment is a key principle to Buckland. We have committed some £100m to date – funding the consultant team, the Outline Planning Application and consultation together with significant land acquisitions in order to provide certainty for the project prior to planning. Our investment will continue with contribution to infrastructure including £20m towards Junction 10 of the M27 together with early delivery of green infrastructure and community facilities alongside delivery of housing.
