Construction work is progressing well at a development of 150 new homes in Weston-super-Mare ahead of its launch this spring.
Bellway is building a collection of one and two-bedroom apartments and two, three and four-bedroom houses at Mead Fields, off Wolvershill Road, including 19 affordable homes for local people available through rent or shared ownership.
The housebuilder has brought the original May launch date forward to March due to high demand for the new-build homes, with around 800 people having already registered an interest in the development.
Bellway’s plans form part of a wider neighbourhood of 1,150 new homes granted planning permission by North Somerset Council, with proposals for new community amenities including a primary school, public open space, and sports facilities.
Rachel Way, Sales Manager for Bellway South West, said: “We are very pleased with how work is progressing at Mead Fields and look forward to welcoming the first visitors to the site next spring.
“Not only is the development meeting the growing demand for housing in Somerset, but it is also providing high-quality properties that will enhance the architectural character of the wider neighbourhood.
“Each property comes with its own garage or allocated parking and will appeal to people at all stages of the housing ladder, including first-time buyers, families and commuters around the region.
“A particular draw of this development is its seaside location, being just a 10-minute drive from the stunning Somerset coastline and Weston-super-Mare town centre. It is also a 40-minute drive from Bristol and within easy reach of the M5 for access to Gloucester and Exeter.
“As Mead Fields is already proving popular with buyers in the local area, I would encourage any interested house-hunters to register an interest soon to avoid any disappointment.”
