Construction of this major 48.6 hectares new development is underway. By late 2010 about half the homes on site are completed and many occupied. Construction of the final two residential phases is due to start in 2011.
With permission granted for up to 1,035 homes, the completed development will form the basis for a balanced community, combining homes for families, couples and single residents within an attractive environment and supported by a range of services & facilities.
The principal developers involved, Taylor Wimpey, Bryants, Careys and Persimmon are building a mix of housing types, including affordable and shared ownership homes as well as market homes, coupled with features that include:
- Local community centre (to include sports facilities)
- Parks, 3 play areas and open spaces
- Combined School
- Retail & food outlets
As part of the development’s sustainable environmental approach a series of landscaped ’detention basins’ and ditches form part of a drainage and flood prevention system.
As the community develops future facilities could include a care home and a ’Park-and-Ride’ facility.
