Bolsover, Derbyshire, will see more than 200 new homes being built on the end of Mooracre Lane and Rotherham Road. Keepmoat Homes has started work to deliver 212 properties and a show home is due to open on the site this autumn, ahead of properties becoming available at the end of the year.
“We want to bring a thriving new neighbourhood to Bolsover. The homes at Hedgerows will be detached, semi-detached and terraced and from two to five bedrooms, making them ideal for families and suitable for a range of budgets,” said Shaun Fielding, Regional Managing Director for Keepmoat Homes in Midlands.
“The site is on the edge of beautiful countryside and we are making sure the development is in keeping with this by ensuring that the design has included a number of open green spaces,” he added.
The Hedgerows development also includes the building of a safer access route to Rotherham Road from Bolsover centre, with a new through road from Mooracre Lane to Rotherham Road and the inclusion of a speed bump as a traffic calming measure at the entrance of the site.
“We’re working closely with Bolsover Council so we can ensure the development has a really positive impact on the area, bringing growth but also supporting the existing facilities,” said Shaun. “This includes the provision of almost £520,000 just for education contributions, with a further £130,000 for transport contributions plus £53,000 of funding for Bolsover Academy for additional places.”
Headquartered in Doncaster, Keepmoat Homes is a leading house building company in the UK that provides private homes for sale. With an average selling price of £152,000, 72% of the homes Keepmoat sells are to first time buyers, which puts it at the heart of the UK’s need for more quality housing.
