Housebuilder Bellway has begun work on a development of 148 new build homes off Dickens Lane in Poynton.
The 13 acre site has seen initial groundworks and remediation get underway on the site, which will comprise a mix of three- and four-bedroom homes, including affordable housing provision.
All homes will also benefit from private gardens, off road car parking spaces, access to charging points for electric vehicles. Internal specifications include an open plan kitchen dining room with French doors to the garden, choice of fitted kitchen units, integrated appliances and stylish sanitaryware. The development, named Copperfields, will also ensure homes are surrounded by landscaped areas of green space.
Currently unused, the site was previously agricultural land and has been identified in Cheshire East Council’s Local Plan as a sustainable site suitable for redevelopment, close to the thriving market town as well as Poynton’s excellent commuter links with Manchester. Properties are expected to be released for sale in spring 2021 with the first homes will be ready for occupancy in the summer.
Sales Director at Bellway, Hollie Reynolds, commented:
We’re delighted to start work at Copperfields. With its fabulous location close to the Peak District, great selection of independent restaurants, cafes and bars and upmarket shops and good schools, Poynton is a highly desirable residential area that is in increasing demand from a wide variety of buyers including families, first time buyers and couples.
“The development is just a couple of minutes away from the village centre and close to the new A555 relief road that provides easy access to Manchester Airport, the motorway network and Manchester city centre and commuters can reach London easily by train from Wilmslow or Macclesfield station. Early interest in the development has been extremely high and we anticipate great feedback from homebuyers when we release the first properties for sale next year.”
Bellway has also revealed will make several significant financial contributions in the locality that include more than £600,000 towards highway improvements, £130,000 towards open space improvements and £37,800 towards healthcare.
The land was purchased from Gladman Developments and Gateley Legal advised on the deal.
