The leading developer’s Managing Director Campbell Gregg, along with Sales Director Rob Allen, Site Manager Paul Brown, and Construction Director Craig Leverton, were recently onsite to cut the sod at the 240-home community on Watlington Road, which is set to deliver a collection of two to five bedroom properties.

The development will also underpin approximately 480 jobs for local people during its time and will bring significant investments of more than £3 million to the area.

Nestled at the foot of Chiltern Hills (AONB) with the River Thames flowing through the village, the development’s idyllic location offers a range of amenities in the village with excellent road and rail links to Wallingford, Oxford, Reading and London.

Campbell Gregg, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Southern, said, “We’re really excited to have started work at Chiltern Grange and look forward to bringing much needed, quality properties to the area.

“As the development begins to progress, we will not only be contributing to the local area financially, but also in terms of the jobs we have created for local people and the properties we are building.

“Investing in local communities is an extremely important part of building a new housing development. We pride ourselves on our commitment to the local community and strive to support it wherever we can.”

With the first homes due to be released this summer, house hunters are being encouraged to register their interest with the David Wilson Homes sales team to be among the first to hear about the available properties.
