A 200-home housing development on the edge of a Wiltshire town has moved towards completion seven years after its approval.

High Penn Park, a major housing development to the East of Oxford Road on the outskirts of Calne, has been under construction for six years after Wiltshire Council granted planning permission for the scheme in 2016.

Developers Hills Homes have now held a topping out ceremony to mark the final stages of the build.

This involved placing the final roof trusses on the last home at the large development, which boasts 200 “traditional character” houses constructed from brick, stone and render under tiled roofs.

A handful of homes remain on sale at the site.

Nick King, the group director for Hills Homes, said: “High Penn Park has been delivered in three phases over six years and is one of our most popular developments.

“Its success is a testament to the high-quality construction and expert craftsmanship synonymous with our brand.”

“I am pleased to see the site coming to fruition and was delighted to welcome key members of our site team along with surveyors and managers from Wiltshire Council Building Control to the topping out ceremony.”
