Work is set to begin on another phase of new homes at a major development in Edwalton, after detailed plans were given the go-ahead by the local authority.
Vistry Mercia is to build a further 120 new homes at Edwalton Fields, off Melton Road, after Rushcliffe Borough Council approved its detailed planning application.
The housebuilder, part of Vistry Group which incorporates Bovis Homes, Linden Homes and Vistry Partnerships, is to deliver a selection of two to five-bedroom homes for private sale and a range of one to four-bedroom homes as affordable housing for local people through rent or shared ownership.
Vistry is to build these new homes as another phase of its Bovis Homes development at Edwalton Fields, where it has already delivered a range of two to five-bedroom homes.
Edwalton Fields is part of the wider Edwalton Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE) which is set to deliver up to 1,500 new homes through a consortium of housebuilders.
Freya Halsall, marketing assistant at Vistry Mercia, said: “Edwalton Fields has proved to be a very popular development and we expect this high level of demand to continue through into the next phase of new homes.
“We are proud to be playing a significant role in the delivery of this major new neighbourhood which will bring many benefits to the local community. This latest phase of homes at Edwalton Fields demonstrates our continued commitment to the project and we look forward to starting construction work on site in the coming months.”
The wider development at Edwalton has seen the opening of a new primary school, Rosecliffe Spencer Academy. A community centre, a public open space and a community park featuring a BMX track will also be delivered as part of the scheme.
Freya said: “Edwalton Fields is a sustainable development which has been designed to blend in with its surroundings and provide a restful and calm environment for residents. Footpaths and cycleways will link the site to the community park and the nearby 23-acre Sharphill Wood which offers the chance to get back to nature.
“The development has broad appeal and provides residents with the best of both worlds – an attractive setting with woodlands on the doorstep and Nottingham city centre just five miles away. The selection of bungalows, apartments and houses will attract a wide range of buyers which should ensure the growth of a vibrant new community.”
There is currently a three-bedroom showhome available to reserve at the Bovis Homes Edwalton Fields development, priced from £164,998.
Vistry is also currently building a selection of two, three, four and five-bedroom homes at Edwalton Fields under its Linden Homes brand.
