New Housing Developments

There are lots of new homes for sale and rent being built by Bellway Homes. Since the project began in 2006, we have demolished 887 homes, including 5 tower blocks, which had become unsustainable. Over 1,300 new homes have now been built over 33 different sites, introducing choice into the housing market. More than half of the homes that are being built are for social rent and a large proportion of the remainder are available for low cost home ownership through equity share arrangements. Bellway are currently offering ‘Help to Buy’ 20% Equity Loan on all their open market sale homes.

There are currently a number of new developments under way. Click the images below for more information or see the site plans by clicking on the download buttons.
