Bellway starts work on new development in Chellaston

Construction work has begun on a new housing development which is set to launch in Chellaston.

Bellway is building 78 new homes at The Meadows, off Snelsmoor Lane, including 48 properties for private sale and 30 affordable homes for social rent or shared ownership.

The Meadows forms one part of a 245-home scheme being delivered by Bellway in the village, which will also include the adjoining Holbrook Park development.

Detailed plans for the 245 homes were approved by Derby City Council in May this year. Construction work is now underway at both developments, with the first homes at The Meadows due to go on sale in October.

Steve Smith, Sales Director for Bellway East Midlands, said: “The Meadows represents our latest contribution towards meeting the need for high-quality new housing in Chellaston. Over the past seven years, we have delivered over 280 homes at different sites in the village. By the time these two developments have been completed, that figure will have risen to more than 500.

“The Meadows will offer a varied mix of one to four-bedroom properties, ensuring that the needs of a wide range of buyers will be catered for. The three and four-bed properties will be available for private sale, while the one and two-beds will be affordable housing along with some three and four-bedroom homes, too.

“We have designed a scheme which will fit seamlessly into its surroundings. Our plans for the development include large areas of public open space and a country park, which will give this new neighbourhood a desirable semi-rural feel.

“With construction work now underway, we anticipate handing over the keys to the first completed homes at The Meadows by summer next year.”

The Meadows and Holbrook Park are both part of a wider scheme of up to 800 new homes which received outline planning permission in May.

As part of the planning agreement for the 800-home scheme, over £9 million will be provided by the developers for local services and infrastructure. Contributions will include £7 million for the building of a new primary school, £2,462,868 towards secondary education, and £30,000 for traffic calming measures.
