Bellway’s plans to build 413 high quality new build homes in Halewood, Merseyside, have been approved.
The housebuilder is set to deliver two new residential developments as part of the East Halewood masterplan, featuring a mix of 310 private and 103 affordable homes.
The larger of the two sites is Halewood Oaks, located on Baileys Lane, opposite Halewood Leisure Centre, will comprise a total of 315 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes set around areas of attractively landscaped open green space designed for public use.
The second, smaller development, is on Greensbridge Lane and will be known as Plummers Meadow, after the late Rev Canon F B Plummer of the nearby St Nicholas Church, who tragically lost three of his seven sons in the First World War. This will comprise 98 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes also set around public green space.
Both sites will feature houses from Bellway’s stunning new artisan collection, which combines first-class craftsmanship with architectural flair. The collection has been designed to ensure residents enjoy both a stunning street scene and a future-proof forever home with a flexible and inviting interior with modern lifestyles firmly in mind.
This represents the first foray into Halewood for Bellway’s North West division, whose regional office is at Hunts Cross in Liverpool.
Bellway North West Sales Director, Jenny Bell, said: “We are delighted to secure planning consent for two beautiful new developments, our first in Halewood. Plans for both are superb and we are looking forward to getting started on site later this year. Once complete, the developments will form part of an exciting new residential area in Halewood offering an excellent mix of high-quality new build homes that are close to open green space, well placed for local amenities and served by good transport links.”
Bellway will contribute financially to the local area as part of its development plan, providing funds to improve education, infrastructure and access to open space for residents in the immediate local area.
Indeed, it will provide more than £4million in total, £1.83 million of which will be spent on highway improvements, while £1.45 million will go towards ensuring there are enough primary school places within Halewood. In addition, some £360,000 will be spent on improving the facilities at Halewood Leisure Centre, and £320,000 towards the management, maintenance and enhancement of Finch Woods.
