Homebuilder Keepmoat Homes took over the project after buying the greenfield land (with planning permission) from Sleaford Property Developments.
At the time of this writing, work was due to begin on March 7.
The project is part of the city’s Handley Chase sustainable urban extension off London Road. It is expected to last five years and will include a number of affordable rental units provided by a local housing association.
The overall urban extension will include 1,450 new homes, with plans also for facilities such as a new health centre, community centre, care home and new school.
As part of its commitment to building sustainable communities, Keepmoat Homes has also come up with plans for cycle and footpaths linking to nearby Mareham Pastures Local Nature Reserve.
Shaun Fielding, Regional General Manager of Keepmoat Homes, said: ‘We are delighted to have obtained planning consent for the Handley Chase site and look forward to the residential area serving as a wider community in the area, while promoting a more sustainable way of living. The 270-unit development aims to provide first-time buyers, downsizing or area renters with new, expertly built homes designed for modern living.
“We are pleased to support the local employment economy by attracting local tradespeople and suppliers, and we will be hosting Meet the Builder events to engage potential contractors to carry out the necessary work during the period. of five years.
The first houses should be launched in October.
