Developer given permission to build 135 new homes at Wellingborough's Stanton Cross
The first completions are expected in May 2022
A developer has been granted planning consent to build a further 135 new homes at Wellingborough's Stanton Cross.
Bellway Homes will begin work on their Hawthorn Place development, with the first completions expected in May 2022.
It will be a mix of two, three and four-bed rooms with seven affordable homes, and comes after the firm's existing The Beeches development at Stanton Cross.
Luke Southgate, sales director for Bellway Northern Home Counties, said: “Hawthorn Place at Stanton Cross will form part of a new community which is already becoming well-established at Stanton Cross, on the eastern edge of Wellingborough and just over two miles from the town centre.
“We’ve already seen high levels of demand for the new homes we’re building at The Beeches at Stanton Cross and are committed to delivering further new housing for the local area with this new parcel of land.
“Across these two sites, we will be providing 284 much-needed new homes, including 14 affordable properties for local people.
“This is a flagship neighbourhood which, as a whole, will offer 3,650 new homes alongside leisure and community facilities, shops, offices and schools, creating 3,000 new jobs and driving more than £1bn of investment into the area."
Further infrastructure investment is also under way at Stanton Cross, including a new 115-acre 'Town and Country park' as part of the site’s ongoing green infrastructure planning and a new 420-pupil primary school in Irthlingborough Road.
Lee Barrett, divisional operations director for Vistry Group and a representative of Stanton Cross Developments LLP, promoters of the Stanton Cross project, said: “Granting of planning consent to enable Bellway to add a further 135 homes to the Stanton Cross community is another important and exciting milestone on the Stanton Cross journey.
"It will further underpin the significant progress we are making in creating a major residential-led development that builds a welcoming community where people want to live.”
