Work Begins On Peterborough Housing Development
Construction work has commenced on a housing development south of Peterborough, which will see 347 new properties when complete.
Builders have started to put corrugated roofing sheets up for the Countryside houses at Great Haddon, 125 of which will be for open-market sale, 117 will be for private rental and 105 will be allocated as affordable homes.
Glyn Mabey, managing director of East Midlands Countryside, said the properties will provide “high-quality accommodation”.
“The project will deliver excellence in design, build quality and energy efficiency to meet the most exacting of standards well into the future,” it was added.
The development will also include new schools, community amenities and water features, making it an appealing and pleasant place to live.
Legal & General Suburban Build to Rent, which will own and manage the homes to let, noted the scheme will offer “high-quality rental housing for families across the UK”.
The mixed-use development will see two-, three- and four-bedroom homes being built in an area surrounded by existing woodland.
This comes after Countryside started work on a 500-property development in Warrington town centre. The Rivers Edge development, which is at the old Spectra Packaging location, will see the properties built in the developer’s modular factory and assembled on site.
MP for Warrington South Andy Carter stated it was “incredibly insightful” seeing the latest methods of construction, and how this benefits future homeowners.
He stated: “The River’s Edge development is a great example of locally based builders making best use of brownfield site.”
