We have recently completed the purchase of a site in West End, Woking; a premium Surrey location with Detailed Planning Permission for 95 homes. 

We intend to build the site in line with the existing Planning Permission, comprising of 57 private units and 38 affordable units with an area of green open space.

We were excited to secure this exceptional site, bidding against stiff competition from large PLC housebuilders.  We were successful because of our reputation for delivery.

Testimonial: Ben Richardson, Director at MHA London
"Martin Grant Homes was a pleasure to deal with. The team proved to be honourable and performed quickly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them or doing business with them in the future."

We are delighted that our new site, Summerswood in West Sussex, has now launched to the market.

Summerswood is close to the popular historic village of Ifield and only an hour away from central London (just 10 minutes from Gatwick Airport).  This semi-rural, strategically located site represents the type of plot we want to find more of.

Chris Hamilton, Managing Director of Martin Grant Homes said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of this unique development in one of the most picturesque areas of Sussex. We expect the combination of well-designed family homes, wealth of green space and easy access to an urban village lifestyle to prove popular with a range of buyers.”

We will be opening the doors to our new Show Home and Sales Centre on Saturday 15 July and our first plot completions will be from September onwards.

Martin Grant Homes and Harcourt Developments are together preparing a Planning Application to create a high quality residential development at Hampton Green, Northampton.  Our current proposals include the creation of up to 525 homes on land allocated for a sustainable urban extension by the West Northamptonshire Joint Planning Unit. 

We recently completed a consultation on the site and welcomed great interest from stakeholders and the local community in our proposals.  The consultant team is currently in the final stages of preparing their technical reports and documentation to support the submission of a Planning Application.

The successfully delivered consultation and preparation of the Outline Planning Application once again emphasised our ability to carry large-scale strategic sites through the planning process.

Find out more about our proposals on our consultation website.


We are pleased to confirm that we have recently completed on the purchase of Ricardo Court in Bramley, Surrey.  The site has Outline Planning Permission for 24 homes and an area of open space. 
Our Planning and Technical Team are already working on the detailed layout and house designs in order to obtain Full Planning Permission.  We expect, therefore, to start construction later this summer.

Ricardo Court, just 8 miles away from our office in Abinger Hammer is important to us geographically, adding to our presence in the South.  We would be delighted to hear of any similar plots you may have in the region.
