Work begins on 130 new Bellway homes in Peterborough

Bellway has started work on a new housing development on land that was previously part of the East of England Showground in Peterborough.

Peterborough City Council gave the go-ahead for the developer to build 128 new homes on 13.5 acres of land, close to the village of Alwalton.

There will be 113 homes for private sale and 15 affordable properties for shared ownership or low-cost rent.

The development, which will be called Elder Brook, will sit on a parcel of land to the south of Oundle Road and to the north of the showground, close to the A1. It will launch in September this year when a sales office will open on site.

The scheme will feature two main areas of public open space, to the west and the north east of the site.

Phil said: “We are building a wide range of homes at this development, and we have seen a lot of interest with over 500 people already signed up to the database. The rural nature of the site and the fact that it is only five miles from the centre of Peterborough – and close to the A1 – will offer residents the best of both worlds.”

Bellway plans to open two showhomes at Elder Brook early in 2023.
