Construction work is underway at a Bellway development in Milton Keynes that will generate investment worth around £4.2m for the local area.
National housebuilder Bellway is building 230 new homes on former agricultural land, which is part of the Western Expansion Area, between Stony Stratford, Two Mile Ash and Crownhill. The new development will feature a range of one to five-bedroom homes, and the first homes are expected to be released for sale next month.
The development will become part of wider plans to develop the 350-hectare site, which could eventually provide around 6,500 new homes, as well as parkland and employment land. Bellway’s development will also feature the grade two listed Whitehouse Farm, which will be preserved as part of the new community.
As part of the planning agreement for the site, Bellway will be making a number of contributions to the local community.
Sales Director for Bellway’s Northern Home Counties division, Chris Edginton, said the housebuilder was proud to be playing a part in creating a landmark development in Milton Keynes.
“We’re getting closer to launching the first properties at Whitehouse Farm and we’re excited to be providing new homes in Milton Keynes.
“Our plans will become part of a landmark development in Milton Keynes, which is something we are very proud of,” he said.
“There is a proven demand for new homes in this area, and we’re striving to help meet this need.
“This is a large site that has been designed to appeal to a broad range of buyers, and we’re expecting strong interest in the homes here. First-time buyers will be able to take their first step on the property ladder here, and both families and downsizers will be able to find a sizeable home with flexible floorplans to suit their needs.
“We’re expecting interest and enquiries to increase substantially in the run up to launching the first homes here, so we would encourage people to register their interest so they don’t miss out.”
