Bellway to launch next phase of Newark housing development

The next phase of a major new housing development on the edge of Newark will launch later this summer.

Bellway is to release the first homes for sale in phase three of The Foresters at Middlebeck in the coming months.

The housebuilder is delivering a further 101 private and five affordable homes at the site off Bowbridge Lane, following the completion of 138 properties across the first two phases.

The latest phase will include a mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses.

Bellway started construction work on the 7.5-acre site in February 2018. The Foresters is part of a wider neighbourhood of around 3,150 homes which is taking shape at the southern edge of the town.

Kenny Lattimore, Sales Manager for Bellway East Midlands, said: “The 244 homes we are building at The Foresters represents a significant contribution towards the provision of much-needed new housing being delivered by the wider consortium of housebuilders at Middlebeck.

“Following the successful completion of 138 homes in the first two phases, we are now very much looking forward to launching the next phase of properties onto the market.

“Phases one and two of the development are now sold out, and they are currently selling their last showhome, so the delivery of these additional homes will continue to grow what is already a vibrant new neighbourhood in Newark.

“Demand for the homes at The Foresters has been particularly strong with local people, who have been impressed with the site’s desirable location on the southern edge of the town. This development benefits from an enviable semi-rural setting which has strong transport links to nearby towns and cities such as Nottingham, Leicester, Lincoln and Grantham, all of which can be reached in under an hour via the A46 or A1.

As part of the planning agreement for its development, Bellway is providing financial contributions of almost £4 million towards local services, with £850,000 going towards the provision of off-site sports facilities, and £2.5 million towards the cost of local transport infrastructure improvements.
