Redrow’s Clitheroe development offers more choice for first-time buyers

The development, off Whalley Road, has two distinct new homes collections that include a number of three and four bedroom homes, perfectly suited for family life or young couples sharing. While the Heritage Collection offers traditional Arts and Crafts inspired architecture with period style features, the Harwood range provides streamlined, smart exteriors, finished in stone, for those who prefer a more contemporary look. Both collections offer up to the minute interiors designed for modern lifestyles. Current prices start from £282,995 for a three-bedroom detached Birch, while four-bedroom detached homes start from £329,995. Sian Pitt, sales director at our Lancashire division says: “Buying your first home is a big step so you’ll want to choose one that you will love for years to come. Oak Leigh Gardens has a great selection from both our Heritage Collection and Harwood range. One thing they do have in common is providing plenty of space to grow into, open-plan kitchens, and main bedrooms with their own en-suites, plus private gardens to relax in.” Homebuyers can also use the Government backed Help to Buy to get them moving sooner. Sian explains how it works: “Buyers can secure a house with just a 5% deposit and then the Government will lend up to 20% of the value of the new home through an equity loan, which is interest free for the first five years and can be repaid at any time within 25 years or on the resale of the home, whichever is sooner. Buyers will then need just a 75% mortgage from a bank or building society of choice.” Nestled between Pendle Hill and the Forest of Bowland, in the sought-after Ribble Valley, Oak Leigh Gardens’ rural location has proved to be an attractive selling point for commuters and young families, especially as it’s also so well connected. Situated just off the main A59 Preston Road, the homes are close to the M6; Clitheroe is less than three miles away and places like Blackburn, Burnley, Preston and even Manchester are all easily reached. Closer to home, there’s an Ofsted ‘outstanding’ rated primary school just a short walk away, and two ‘outstanding’ rated senior schools within a couple of miles. To find out more about the homes or help available see www.redrow.co.uk/oakleigh, call 01254 865167 or visit the development and view the fully furnished show homes, which are usually open daily from 10am to 5.30pm.

Bicester to Welcome 1,500 New Homes

1,500 new homes are to be delivered by Wates Developments and Redrow Homes in Wretchwick Green, Bicester. Cherwell District Council’s Planning Committee granted approval to the revised planning application, which includes housing of dwelling types, sizes and tenures to meet the range of local needs. “This is a great example of how large-scale developments can be brought forward successfully and sympathetically which local people will be proud of for years to come,” said a spokesperson for Wates Developments and Redrow Homes. “While we have changed significant aspects of the masterplan over time, the core ethos for the site has remained in place. We want to create a great place to live and work, with a strong identity of its own, but with equally strong links to Bicester and the surrounding area. Our aim now is to continue to work positively with all stakeholders allowing development to be brought forward swiftly and homes to be built to meet the urgent local need,” the spokesperson added. A key part of the ‘garden town’ plan for the area, the project ensures the amount of open space extends to 71.64 hectares, which equates to over 50% of the overall site. Over four hectares of sports pitches are also provided in one location. Adjacent to the shops and community facility, a new primary school is planned. Meanwhile, approximately eight play areas will be provided across the site including a destination play area which has been designed to be accessible to existing local residents, as well as new ones. In addition, up to 7 hectares of employment land provision has been included, which could provide around 750 high quality local jobs and a vibrant mix of uses within the scheme, together with creating a significant number of jobs through the development phase. The project team consulted with Historic England to redesign the area around the medieval village to the west of the site in order to better respect its setting.

Redrow Helps Keep Children at West Monkton Primary School Safe

A housing developer is helping ensure children get to school safely while a footpath is temporarily closed near Taunton. Redrow Homes has paid for a new temporary road crossing and lollipop person at the The Heathfields site in Monkton Heathfield. Construction at the site has led to the temporary closure of a footpath which is used by many children and parents to reach West Monkton Primary School. Charlotte Munday, area sales manager for Redrow South West, said: “We take our position as a responsible developer very seriously and this includes ensuring our building work has minimal impact on the surrounding community. “As soon as we were aware of the need for a footpath closure near our site and the site of the new school we took action to ensure a safer environment for those accessing the school.” The build of the new homes meant that Weston Monton School was given provision to grow in the development plans, including the relocation to the new site. Mr Robinson, head teacher of West Monkton Primary School, said: “Our school is a thriving and growing community, in every sense of the word. “On the edge of a new housing development, West Monkton has grown from a seven-class school into an 14-class school with the capacity for 420 pupils and a 52 place nursery, whichopens in January. “Operating at the heart of an on-going area of development we are faced with many challenges. We have been working closely with the Highways team at Somerset County Council, the local community and local councillors to ensure that the journey to school is a safe one. “One of our recent concerns was regarding closure of a footpath that many staff, parents, pupils and visitors use to get to school each day. “Fortunately for us the developer concerned, Redrow, has put funds in place for a School Crossing Patrol which provides us with great peace of mind to know our school community can cross the road safely.” Article taken from http://www.somersetcountygazette.co.uk/news/14975461.Redrow_helps_keep_children_safe_at_new_school_site/
