Owen White acted for Bovis Homes in connection with the creation of a 50:50 joint venture between Bovis Homes and The Riverside Group.

The joint venture will form part of a new community at Stanton Cross, on the edge of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. In total, Stanton Cross will deliver over 3,650 new homes together with leisure, retail and office space, new schools, public parks and open spaces.

Bovis has transferred assets totalling £102.6m into the joint venture. Each joint venture partner contributed equity of £33.1 million. The existing Homes England loan of £36.4 million was transferred from Bovis to the joint venture.

Gregg Fitzgerald, Chief Executive of Bovis Homes Group, commented,

‘We are very pleased to have formed this partnership with Riverside, one of the UK’s leading providers of affordable housing and look forward to creating this exciting new community at Stanton Cross with them. We announced the development of our Partnership Housing Division earlier this year, and this is a great example of our land led strategy and working partnership, in particular with housing associations, on our larger developments.’

The Owen White team was led by directors Phil Lawrence and Andrew Hayward.

Phil Lawrence said,

‘We are delighted to have been part of this exciting project. We are sure that the new joint venture will be a great success.’
