Construction work has begun at The Meadows in Chellaston. The housing development will see 78 new homes built off Snelsmoor Lane.

The properties are being built by Bellway and will include 48 properties for private sale. Another 30 affordable homes will be built for social rent or shared ownership.

The Meadows is part of a 245-home scheme being built by Bellway in the village. It will also include a development at Holbrook Park.

Derby City Council approved the plans for the 245 homes in May this year. Construction is now underway at both sites, with the first homes at The Meadows expected to go on sale in October.

Steve Smith, sales director for Bellway East Midlands, said: “The Meadows represents our latest contribution towards meeting the need for high-quality new housing in Chellaston. Over the past seven years, we have delivered over 280 homes at different sites in the village. By the time these two developments have been completed, that figure will have risen to more than 500.

“The Meadows will offer a varied mix of one to four-bedroom properties, ensuring that the needs of a wide range of buyers will be catered for. The three and four-bed properties will be available for private sale, while the one and two-beds will be affordable housing along with some three and four-bedroom homes, too.

“We have designed a scheme which will fit seamlessly into its surroundings. Our plans for the development include large areas of public open space and a country park, which will give this new neighbourhood a desirable semi-rural feel.

“With construction work now underway, we anticipate handing over the keys to the first completed homes at The Meadows by summer next year.”

The two developments are part of a wider scheme to develop 800 homes in the area. As part of these plans, over £9m will be provided by the developers for local services and infrastructure. Contributions will include £7m for the building of a new primary school, £2,462,868 for secondary education, and £30,000 for traffic calming measures.
