Phase 1 of the development began in Q1 2020 with land being prepared for the delivery of the first 350-480 homes at Hugglescote Grange. In June 2020, 16 acres of engineered land was sold to Redrow Homes for the construction of the first 204 family homes with these works currently on-site. In December 2020, 12.5 acres was sold to Bellway Homes for the delivery of 166 homes with these works due to commence in 2021.
A new access roundabout off Grange Road has been completed and internal roads and services are also under construction. This will open up around 40 acres in four separate parcels, for future housing development accommodating approximately 480 new homes.
Approval has also been given to install landscaping alongside the southern and Eastern sides of Hugglescote Grange including the construction of two play areas and completion of the permanent public right of way route. The first phases of these works are due to complete by March 2022.
Earthworks have also commenced on Phase 2 of the site at Swinfen Vale, which comprises the land north of Beveridge Lane and south of the River Sence. A new access roundabout, infrastructure and landscaping will also commence shortly.
