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. Between June 2020 and December 2021, engineered land was sold to Redrow Homes, Bellway Homes and Morris Homes for the construction of the first c.500 family homes with these works currently on-site and the first residents starting to move in on-site at the end of 2021.
A new access roundabout off Grange Road has been completed in addition to the internal roads and services unlocking the land for residential development.
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 have commenced and are due to complete by the end of 2022.
Earthworks, infrastructure works and landscaping 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. The first residential phase of Swinfen Vale was sold to Bellway Homes in November 2021 for the delivery of 189 new homes.
