Development on former Royal Mail site in Chelmsford nears completion

Bellway is adding the finishing touches to its Novello development in Chelmsford as construction work at the site nears completion.

The homebuilder has delivered 203 apartments on the site of the former Royal Mail sorting office off Victoria Road, where there is just three new homes still available to buy.

The completion of the development, a collection of one and two-bedroom apartments split across four residential buildings, marks the end of eight years of regeneration work by Bellway in Chelmsford city centre.

Novello follows the completion of Marconi Evolution, a scheme of almost 500 new homes built on the former Marconi factory site off New Street, and the opening of Bellway Essex’s new divisional office in nearby Cunard Square, off Townfield Street.

Between them, the two residential developments have delivered an investment of more than £6 million in local services and infrastructure through the planning agreements with Chelmsford City Council.

The final homes for sale at Novello start at £263,995 and are ready to move into straight away.
