bellway homes

Bellway invites the public to explore Fallow Wood View, a cutting-edge low-carbon housing development in Burgess Hill. Nestled within the larger Brookleigh scheme, this eco-friendly venture features 247 homes built using advanced Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), presenting a blend of efficiency and sustainability. Departing from conventional blockwork, Fallow Wood View employs timber frames and panels, a progressive approach to construction that aligns with Bellway's commitment to environmentally conscious building practices. Positioned on the eastern stretch of the Brookleigh site, the initial phase of Fallow Wood View spans 13 acres adjacent to Isaacs Lane, encompassing 222 homes along with public spaces like a pocket park and village green, fostering a sense of community. Bellway's dedication to swift, eco-friendly construction methods is evident in this phase. Daniel Williamson, Sales Director for Bellway South London, highlighted the development's sustainability, stating, "Fallow Wood View is a sustainable development where we are constructing all the homes employing quicker modern methods of construction (MMC). This forward-thinking process not only cuts down the build time and improves energy efficiency but also makes use of a more sustainable material in the form of timber." The timber used in construction adheres to Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards, ensuring responsible sourcing practices that preserve biodiversity and support local communities. Research indicates a 31% reduction in carbon emissions against current building regulations, with all properties meeting the Future Homes Standard. Each home incorporates renewable technologies such as electric vehicle charging points, solar panels, or air source heat pumps. Sales of properties at Fallow Wood View have commenced, with the first homes in the Brookleigh neighbourhood available for open-market purchase. The development has garnered significant interest due to its innovative construction methods and sustainability features. Brookleigh, also known as the Northern Arc, spearheaded by Homes England, envisions a comprehensive community with up to 3,500 new homes, educational facilities, healthcare amenities, business spaces, and recreational areas. A new link road will connect Fallow Wood View's phases, facilitating access to a 40-acre site on Freeks Lane, where further developments and extensions to Bedelands Nature Reserve are planned. Fallow Wood View's 247 homes include 172 properties for private sale and 75 affordable homes for local residents through low-cost rent and shared ownership. With construction well underway, the first residents are anticipated to move into their completed homes in June 2024, marking a significant milestone in Burgess Hill's sustainable urban development.

Work begins on 800-home Forster Park development in Stevenage

Work begins on 800-home Forster Park development in Stevenage

A ground-breaking ceremony has been held at a new housing development which will deliver up to 800 homes and a new country park to Stevenage. Bellway North London and Miller Homes will build up to 800 homes at the development, which will also feature a local centre, a primary school, country park and public open space. Work has now started on the first phase of new homes, for which detailed planning consent was granted by Stevenage Borough Council earlier this year. Bellway is to build 400 homes overall – with 105 homes on the first phase, featuring 75 two, three and four-bedroom properties for private sale and 30 affordable homes available for local people through low-cost rent or shared ownership. Miller Homes is delivering 396 new homes at Forster Park, including 43 for private sale and 41 affordable homes on the first phase. The North Road development will feature a range of energy efficient two to five-bedroom homes and is anticipated to launch later this year. Ali Maruf, Managing Director of Bellway North London, said: “A significant milestone for Bellway, the ground-breaking at Forster Park celebrates our joint project with Miller Homes which has local community, heritage and sustainability at its core. “To mark the start of construction, we gathered together on the land near Rooks Nest House, where the renowned English writer EM Forster grew up, and which inspired his novel Howard’s End. This is truly a beautiful part of the world, and we have named our development Forster Park in his honour. “We are committed to an overarching focus on sustainability, which complements the site’s natural surroundings, as well as Bellway’s ethos. Existing trees and shrubs will be retained wherever possible, alongside the addition of generous new planting. Green open spaces and ponds will be thoughtfully designed and implemented to help support local wildlife, as well as bird and bat boxes being installed.“This first phase will see us not only deliver new homes – which will all have electric vehicle charging points – but also a new local centre with commercial space which could be used to house a convenience store.” Detailed applications for a further 115 homes within phase one and the 93-acre country park are to be considered by the council at a later date. Ali added: “With regard to the wider scheme, we are proud to be teaming up with Miller Homes to create a brand-new neighbourhood that will bring huge investment to improve local infrastructure and services.”Gavin Jones, regional operations director at Miller Homes South Midlands, commented: “We are excited to announce that our work has now begun on Miller Homes’ new Stevenage development, Forster Park.“Energy efficiency and environmental considerations are at the forefront of these designs; EV charging points will ensure homes are futureproofed for the new community we are creating at Forster Park, while boxes for birds and bats will encourage wildlife to thrive in green open spaces. “Together, we will also be making contributions of over £1.1 million to the local community, including support for healthcare, schools, transport and infrastructure, and sports facilities. “The development is conveniently situated in an excellent location for commuters, with easy access to the A1M and Stevenage town centre for the train station for easy connections to London.” Both Bellway and Miller Homes expect to officially launch later on this year, with show homes to follow in spring 2024.

Bellway invests more than £4,000,000 into facilities and services in West Sussex

Bellway invests more than £4,000,000 into facilities and services in West Sussex

Bellway South London is investing more than £4,000,000 in local infrastructure in West Sussex, as the company builds new homes at three developments in the county. The developer is delivering a total of 348 homes across sites in Chichester, Crawley and Thakeham, as well as providing new public open space and other facilities for the benefit of local residents. As part of the planning agreement for the developments, the housebuilder is also making contributions which will help fund improvements to roads, air quality, wildlife and allotments.  Daniel Williamson, Sales Director of Bellway South London, said: “Through these three developments, we are contributing a total of more than £4,000,000 to help improve a range of local facilities in Crawley, Thakeham and Chichester. “These contributions are perfect examples of how new homes can deliver wider benefits to the communities where we build. The planning agreements ensure funding is in place to support the local authority as new residents move in, thereby enabling services to be improved or to increase capacity.” Bellway South London is building 88 new homes at Indigo Park, off Shopwhyke Road in Chichester. The development will provide 77 private homes and 11 affordable properties for local people as well as a children’s play area.  The housebuilder is contributing more than £230,000 towards improvements to the A27 in the area and more than £51,000 towards mitigation for the Chichester Harbour Special Protection Area. At Riverbrook Place in Crawley, the developer is delivering 185 new homes, with 111 homes for private sale and 74 affordable homes, and a kick-about space to the north of the site. Bellway is contributing over £127,000 toward outdoor sports space, more than £20,000 towards allotments and £20,000 towards the relocation and upgrade of bus stops on Steers Lane. Bellway is also building 75 new homes at Abingworth Fields, on a site off Abingworth Crescent in the village of Thakeham. The development will feature 49 properties for private sale, including eight two-bedroom houses for the over-55s, as well as 26 affordable properties for local people, plus workshops for local businesses, open space and allotments. Financial contributions here include £31,000 to help Thakeham Parish Council implement its strategy to improve air quality and £28,000 towards the running costs of the village hall. Daniel said: “As part of these planning agreements, we are delivering on a range of commitments which will bring positive benefits to the local communities. Public open spaces and children’s playgrounds will enable residents to get together in an outdoor environment while allotments will allow people to grow their own food. “In addition to this, the employment opportunities provided by Bellway to staff and contractors, who are often local people, and the extra money new residents will spend within the local economy are further evidence of the positive impact these developments will have within their communities. “Our ongoing commitment to building much-needed new homes and creating new communities in West Sussex is further supported by two new sites that we have coming soon. “Work has started to build 287 new homes at Elizabeth Square in Worthing, and a further 247 new homes at Fallow Wood View in Burgess Hill will soon start to be built, and these developments will generate further funding for local infrastructure there.” For more information about Bellway South London’s developments in West Sussex, visit https://www.bellway.co.uk/new-homes/south-london.

'Bellway to complete construction at seven sites across North East delivering more than 1,100 new homes'

‘Bellway to complete construction at seven sites across North East delivering more than 1,100 new homes’

Construction work on all homes at seven Bellway developments across the North East is due to be completed this year, delivering more than 1,100 new homes for people in the area. Building work is nearing the final stages at Arcot Manor in Cramlington, Moorfields in Killingworth, Burdon Rise in Ryhope, Havannah Park in Hazlerigg, Ottermead at Jameson Manor and The Listed at Ottermead in Ponteland and at Northdene in North Shields. As well as providing much-needed new homes, Bellway is contributing £7.8 million to improve local facilities and infrastructure as part of the planning agreements with local authorities for these developments. Bellway North East Sales Director, Emma Chesterton, said: “The hard work of the whole Bellway North East team – from our construction and sales teams on site to everyone at our headquarters in Gateshead – has helped us get to the point where we are nearing completion of seven developments across the region. “With our roots in the region, we are committed to significant investment in housing and infrastructure across Newcastle and the wider North East.” By the end of the year Bellway will have delivered 226 homes at Arcot Manor in Cramlington, as well as investing £1.9 million in local infrastructure, while at Havannah Park in nearby Hazlerigg, 224 homes will have been built, with funding from Bellway of £2.2 million towards local services including education, healthcare, roads and wildlife. At Moorfields in Killingworth, 336 homes have been provided by Bellway, with Ashberry Homes, part of Bellway Group, continuing work on a further 91 homes at Moorfields View to complete the wider 427-home neighbourhood – which has generated investment of more than £900,000 for schools, roads, healthcare and parks. Meanwhile, in Ponteland, two developments are nearing completion on the former Northumbria Police HQ site off North Road. Ottermead at Jameson Park consists of 184 new homes, while The Listed at Ottermead comprises 22 Grade II-listed Arts and Crafts-style properties which have been carefully restored into apartments and houses. The redevelopment of the site has also seen £1.5 million provided for local facilities. At Northdene in North Shields, a further 75 new homes have transformed a disused former reservoir site, as well as bringing more than £460,000 in contributions for primary schools, parks, play areas, sports facilities, playing pitches, allotments, wildlife and employment and training. And at Burdon Rise in Ryhope, Bellway has built 109 new four and five-bedroom houses, as well as investing £1.5 million in the local area, with funding for affordable housing, primary schools, play equipment, ecology and habitats, and roads. Emma continues: “We are not just building houses, we are creating a real sense of place and a sense of community at our developments. Bellway’s funding will not only benefit the new residents at these developments, but also people living in the wider community. “Looking back, it’s important to take stock of everything the team has achieved, and it’s particularly rewarding to see all these completed developments coming through, with residents and communities growing by the week.” For more information about Bellway developments in the North East, visit https://www.bellway.co.uk/new-homes/north-east.

First homes released onto the market at Whitehouse Park

Bellway releases first homes onto the market at Whitehouse Park

The first homes at Bellway’s latest development in Milton Keynes have now gone on sale, following the start of construction work on site this summer. The housebuilder is delivering 175 properties in the first phase of Bellway at Whitehouse Park, including 53 affordable homes for low-cost rent or shared ownership.

Phase one at Bellway at Whitehouse Park will feature a mix of two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses for sale on land off Watling Street. The first residents at this development are expected to move into their completed properties early next year. Luke Southgate, Sales Director at Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: ““Bellway at Whitehouse Park will form a major part of Milton Keynes’ future development. It will provide a range of modern new-build properties in an attractive semi-rural location just a few miles from the city centre and Milton Keynes Central railway station. “With construction work underway and first homes now released for sale, we are on schedule to finish the first properties on site in February 2023. “This is the fourth successive year that Milton Keynes Council has met its housing supply target and we have made a significant contribution towards that. “We are currently building at two developments in Wavendon, one at Tattenhoe Park, and are hoping to start construction work on a new site in Greenleys next summer. We have strong ties to Milton Keynes as our divisional office is based in the city and are committed to helping to provide the new homes which are needed for the city to continue to grow and thrive.” For more information about Bellway at Whitehouse Park, visit https://www.bellway.co.uk/new-homes/northern-home-counties/bellway-at-whitehouse-park.         Building, Design & Construction Magazine | The Choice of Industry Professionals

Bellway starts work on 91 homes at Integra 61 site

Bellway starts work on 91 homes at Integra 61 site

Bellway has broken ground on a new housing development which forms part of a major residential and commercial scheme in Bowburn. The housebuilder has started construction work at Clarence Gate, where it is to deliver 91 homes on an eight-acre parcel of land off Rosalind Franklin Way. Planning permission for the homes was granted by Durham County Council earlier this year. Clarence Gate will feature a mix of three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached houses, totalling 91 homes for private sale. Located just off Junction 61 of the A1 (M), the development is part of the wider Integra 61 project, a mixed-used scheme which is set to create 270 new homes, 4,000 jobs and a £2 billion boost to the regional economy over the next decade. Oliver Wray, Sales Manager from Bellway Durham, said: “The ground-breaking at Clarence Gate paves the way for us to deliver 91 new homes at this strategically important site just off the A1(M). Our development represents one third of the residential element of the Integra 61 scheme and will therefore make a significant contribution to meeting the housing needs of the area. “The mix of three and four-bedroom properties that we are building are intended to suit growing families looking for extra space. The location is well-suited to buyers with children as it is close to local schools such as Bowburn Primary School which is only a mile from Clarence Gate. “The easy access to the A1(M) and A177 also makes this a convenient location for people commuting to Newcastle, Darlington and Durham. “We are planning to release the first homes at Clarence Gate onto the market early next year and anticipate handing over the keys to the first completed properties in Spring 2023.” For more information about the development, call 0191 313 0557 or visit https://www.bellway.co.uk/new-homes/durham/clarence-gate.

Bellway buys land from Homes England for landmark development at Tattenhoe Park

Bellway has completed the purchase of land from Homes England in Milton Keynes, where it will adopt new building technology for the first time in the UK, speeding up the build process with some homes built on a factory production line. Bellway will build 160 homes using Modern Methods of Construction on the 9.2-acre parcel of land at Tattenhoe Park. This will include 40 modular homes and 120 homes built using timber frame panels. The housebuilder was selected to develop the site at Tattenhoe Park as part of a Homes England pilot project to speed up the delivery of new homes. The build programme will be completed within two years of work starting. Paul Smits, Managing Director of Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: “Bellway is committed to exploring innovative ways of delivering new homes more quickly and more sustainably. Tattenhoe Park is therefore a key project for the company, and for the community in Milton Keynes. “Using Modern Methods of Construction will offer benefits beyond speeding up construction. The modular homes, which are built off-site, and the timber frame panels, which replace traditional breeze blocks, are produced in a controlled factory environment. This ensures consistent quality and removes any negative impact from weather conditions. “Both methods improve energy efficiency by creating a more airtight home, and timber is a more sustainable material than brick. The modern processes also reduce the amount of waste produced in the build process. “We have worked with Homes England and with our partners to ensure we can build these homes to the highest standards, for which Bellway is known as a HBF Five Star Builder. “The end result will be a new community which looks comparable with Bellway’s other developments in the area, while delivering these additional benefits to the customer, the community and the environment.” The project is one of a series being led by Homes England with the ambition of delivering 1,800 new homes across the country using a variety of modern construction methods. Bellway’s 160 homes will form phase four of the wider Tattenhoe Park development. Bellway will partner with ilke Homes to deliver the 40 modular homes. Stewart Milne Timber Systems will supply the timber frame panels for the remaining 120 homes. The homes at Bellway’s Tattenhoe Park development will be a range of one and two-bedroom apartments, one and two-bedroom maisonettes and two to four-bedroom houses. The 48 affordable homes will be divided between rental and shared ownership, and there will be a selection of wheelchair accessible properties. Bellway secured planning consent for the development at the end of 2021 and expects to start work on site by the summer. Bellway’s Northern Home Counties division is based in Milton Keynes. The division is already building homes at Wavendon View and Wavendon Chase on the outskirts of Wavendon, and is set to launch a new development at Whitehouse Park in Milton Keynes later this year.

BELLWAY ACQUIRES PRIME RESIDENTIAL SITE AT INTEGRA 61

£300M Durham Mixed Use Scheme Announces Deal With One Of The UK’s Largest House Builders Citrus Durham has announced a major deal with housebuilder Bellway to build up to 100 new homes at the £300m mixed-use Integra 61 development at J61 of the A1(M). Savills was appointed in Spring 2021 to market the 8-acre site located on the northern part of the Integra 61 scheme, immediately adjacent to Bowburn village. The site already benefits from outline planning consent and following very strong competition, Bellway has now exchanged contracts and is aiming to start on site in Spring next year, subject to detailed approval from Durham County Council. The scheme will comprise a mix of 3 and 4 bed houses with the first units expected to be available from late 2022. Following the completion of major infrastructure works in 2020, Integra 61 is now progressing rapidly and is well on its way to creating thousands of new jobs in the area, adding around £2 billion to the regional economy over the next 10 years. Integra 61 is the largest mixed use employment-led scheme the North East has seen in a generation and is already home to Amazon’s new 2 million sq ft Fulfilment Centre which is fully operational with over 1,000 employees on site. A further 1 million sq ft of employment space will be delivered over the next few years to satisfy huge demand from companies looking to move to or expand in the region, which faces a chronic shortage of good quality industrial and logistics floorspace. The scheme will provide a wide range of unit sizes, from 1,200 sq ft up to 500,000 sq ft or more. In addition to the employment space and new homes, the masterplan for Integra 61 also includes a care home,  70-bed hotel, a family pub/restaurant, nursery and roadside/retail opportunities.  Costa Coffee already has a drive-thru unit on site and further lettings are expected shortly. David Cullingford, Project Director for Integra 61 and Citrus Durham, said; “We are delighted to be welcoming Bellway to Integra 61 and to contribute to its ongoing success. Providing new, high quality homes at Integra 61 has always been an extremely important part of our vision to create a thriving, sustainable community on a mixed-use development in a strategic, well-connected location”. Helen Russell, Land Director for Bellway Durham, said: “Located just off the A1(M) near the popular village of Bowburn, Integra 61 is set to become a high quality mixed use scheme located on the outskirts of Durham City. Working alongside Citrus Durham, we are looking forward to building and delivering a prime new homes development. The development will benefit from the extensive local village amenities Bowburn has to offer and the excellent commuter links to the wider North East region”. “Further plans are set to be submitted to Durham County Council in the coming weeks.” For more information about Bellway Durham visit www.bellway.co.uk/new-homes/durham.

Bellway to provide more than 1,000 new homes across Kent and Essex

Bellway is set to deliver 1,134 new homes at four new sites across the south-east of England as the company focuses on the provision of new housing in the Thames Gateway area. Plans are in the pipeline for three new developments in Kent – at Maidstone, Greenhithe and Northfleet – and a further site in Essex, at Fobbing. Bellway Thames Gateway already has planning permission for 532 homes at Harbour Village at Ebbsfleet Garden City in Northfleet, 258 properties at Crossways Quarter in Greenhithe and 168 homes at Maple Creek in Fobbing, while detailed plans are pending consideration for 176 homes for the Bellway at Rosewood development in Langley, Maidstone. Tom Sherriff, Managing Director of Bellway Thames Gateway, said: “We as a company are fully committed to this extensive building schedule which represents a huge commitment by Bellway to the south-east of England. “The need for new housing in this part of the country is widely documented and we are in the process of trying to meet some of that demand. “These developments are four key sites that will help us build on our already extensive portfolio in the Thames Gateway region. These sites will see us create more brand-new communities and provide neighbourhoods where people want to live and put down roots. “The developments differ in size but between them they offer a comprehensive mix of housing, from one-bedroom apartments to five-bedroom houses, which will appeal to a wide range of purchasers from first-time buyers to growing families and down-sizers. “We are set to deliver 966 new homes in Kent and 168 new properties in Essex and are proud to be part of the growing success of both of these counties.” The developer has started construction work on a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments at the Crossways Quarter site – a five-acre site off St Mary’s Road and Crossways Boulevard in Greenhithe. Groundworks have also begun at Harbour Village on the south bank of the Thames as part of the Ebbsfleet Garden City regeneration zone. The Bellway development will include a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments and two to four-bedroom houses on the former Northfleet cement works. The housebuilder is preparing to start work at Maple Creek, which will comprise a mix of two, three, and four-bedroom houses, and one and two-bedroom apartments on a 24-acre site off High Road in Fobbing. Meanwhile, detailed plans have been submitted for the Bellway at Rosewood development in Langley, Maidstone, after outline planning permission was granted by Maidstone Borough Council. The plans are for a range of one to five-bedroom homes, including houses and apartments, with a third of the 10-acre site to be provided as public open space.

Regeneration scheme in Camberwell receives the green light from residents

Bellway has been announced as development partner in a key regeneration scheme in Camberwell. The housebuilder was selected by housing association The Riverside Group to work on its existing estate in March 2018. Together they have been developing a scheme, in consultation with residents. The proposals will replace homes in Canterbury Close, Geoffrey Close and York Close in Camberwell with high-quality new homes built by Bellway. It is only the second largescale regeneration scheme to be voted through by tenants in London since new balloting rules were introduced by Mayor Sadiq Khan in February 2018. The rules mean tenants of housing associations or local authorities are balloted on regeneration schemes that involve demolition of their homes. In this case, 67 per cent voted in favour. The project marks a major landmark for Bellway’s newly-formed London Partnerships division, which will work with housing associations and local authorities to fulfil its aim of creating communities of affordable homes in the capital. Matthew Loughlin, Managing Director of Bellway London Partnerships, said: “We are delighted that Riverside’s residents have recognised the benefits of regeneration in their area and have voted in favour of the scheme. “This project will have a direct and positive impact on the lives of hundreds of people. The proposals are set to give residents of Geoffrey Close, York Close and Canterbury Close more spacious, energy-efficient homes. They can rest assured in the knowledge that Bellway is a five-star housebuilder and we are truly invested in the quality of the homes we build. “The project is an important milestone for the growth of the London Partnerships division which will deliver the wider objectives of the Bellway Group. “We are now looking forward to working alongside Riverside and the residents to develop the scheme from the planning stages through to the delivery of the new homes.” Bellway has worked with the Riverside Group during the consultation period leading up to the ballot and has been involved in pre-application talks with the local council. The next stage is for Riverside and Bellway to draw up a planning application which will be submitted in late spring 2019, with work on the site anticipated to start before the end of 2019.
