"We have already received a huge amount of interest, so I’d urge anyone interested in quality, new homes in Olney to book an appointment and speak to one of our experienced sales advisors.”
Contributions made by the homebuilding company form part of the Section 106 agreement, between Taylor Wimpey and the council. The agreement was organised prior to the company receiving planning permission.

Ms Lloyd added: “We are committed to building high-quality new homes and making sure that our developments are sustainable and positively contribute to local communities.
