Development Update

Our Maida zone at Wellesley is nearly complete and home to 214 families.

As you will have seen work is now well underway on the first two phases of our second zone, Corunna, on the opposite side of Queens Avenue.  The 277 new homes are being delivered by Bellway Homes and Ashberry Homes. The family homes are on sale now and range from one-bedroom apartments to 5-bedroom houses. We expect first residents to be moving in in Spring 2018. More information about the next phase of homes can be found at www.bellway.co.uk and  www.ashberryhomes.co.uk

We have also recently completed the land sale for phases three and four – Barratt David Wilson will be delivering 450 new homes on land heading west towards the Farnborough Road.

Work is now progressing on our Gunhill Zone located between Gun Hill and Middle Hill. Our contractor, Careys is creating 107 private rental homes ranging from one bedroom apartments to four-bedroom houses which will be managed by Grainger plc.  The first homes are due to be ready for occupation in Autumn 2018. We have recently closed the pedestrian footpath between Gun Hill and Middle Hill while works are carried out in the area. The footpath is due to be closed for up to 12 months and we have been working with the nearby Talavera Schools to ensure that any disruption is minimal and a diversion route is in place. More information about Grainger's private rental homes can be found here.

Planning permission has now been granted for our McGrigor zone. Opposite the Cambridge Military Hospital, we expect to start infrastructure works for the zone in Autumn this year. The area will be home to 116 family homes and will see the conversion of the beautiful McGrigor Barrack buildings.
