Housebuilder Bellway Homes has completed the acquisition of more than six acres at Alderley Park, where it will deliver 50 homes.
Known as Heatherley Wood, the development will comprise four, five and six-bedroom detached executive homes, along with a handful of four-bedroom semi-detached townhouses.
In January, Place North West reported that Bellway was lined up to become the third and final residential developer to take forward a scheme within Bruntwood’s Alderley Park, joining PH Homes and PJ Livesey.
Since being taken over by Bruntwood and Manchester Science Partnerships, Alderley Park has seen the start of a £160m programme of investment and redevelopment. Along with science-led commercial space, this is to include the grade two-listed Tenants Hall which is set to become a new pub and restaurant.
Hollie Reynolds, sales director at Bellway Homes, said: “It is incredibly exciting to be part of such a special project. The plans for Heatherley Wood are fantastic and follow months of intricate planning. As a result, the development will offer a superb selection of elegant and sophisticated family homes.”
Chris Doherty, managing director of Alderley Park, said: “Our vision for Alderley Park is coming to life, making it a truly unique place to live, work and relax. Cheshire has much to offer and Alderley Park has much to offer anyone living or working here.
“As a location it represents one of the most attractive residential developments in the North West, with a setting, amenities and convenience few can match.”
GVA How Planning is working with Bellway as lead planning consultant on reserved matters application, while Calderpeel has been engaged as concept architect.
In early 2017, PH Homes acquired 13 acres and submitted plans for a £60m scheme comprising 74 high-end homes, with traditional architect Robert Adam commissioned.
At the same time, PJ Livesey, a heritage specialist, proposed 57 properties – a statement apartment building by Feilden Clegg Bradley with 23 units facing the park’s water garden, along with 17 mews houses within grade two-listed buildings around a courtyard and 17 new build townhouses.
