New Homes in Hertfordshire

Work is about to start on phase three of the Linden Homes development at Meridian Gate in Royston.

The latest phase of the scheme will provide 148 properties for the area, of which 45 will be affordable homes for rent or shared ownership.

This is the final phase of the development, which is located off Newmarket Road, and it will also include the construction of a care home.

Linden Homes, which is part of the Vistry Group, began work on the project in October 2018. Since then, the developer has built 83 homes in phase one and is delivering a further 108 homes in phase two.

All the phase one properties have now sold. By the time the whole 339-home scheme is complete it will have provided 149 affordable homes for the area.

The site recently achieved 100 per cent scores in the Home Builders’ Federation (HBF) customer satisfaction survey for the second year running.

Rob May, site manager at Meridian Gate, said: “The assistant site manager Mark Turner and I have been on this site from day one. What we strive to do every day is to make sure that the house buying experience is as perfect as it can be for every customer. To be honest, our job is made easier by the fact that Linden Homes build houses of real character and quality so that always gives us a head start.”

Jason Colmer, sales and marketing director for Linden Homes Eastern, said: “The high demand for new homes in the area and the selection of properties provided at Meridian Gate have generated a lot of interest in the site. The development has been extremely popular with a wide range of buyers seeking a semi-rural location on the edge of the town. To receive a 100 per cent score in the HBF customer satisfaction survey two years in a row is an outstanding achievement which underlines the commitment of the team on site and the high quality of the homes that we are delivering. With all properties now sold on phase one at Meridian Gate, we are now looking forward to starting work on the third and final phase and continuing to meet the growing need for new homes in this sought-after location.”

A selection of three, four and five-bedroom homes are currently available at Meridian Gate, with prices starting from £409,995.
